The Archives holds a wide range of materials about the social, political, economic, natural, and built history of Thunder Bay. You'll find historically significant materials from City Departments and agencies, as well as from the former cities of Fort William and Port Arthur. Our records date from as early as 1884. You can find many of our photographs on Flickr.
