Fads  -  These photos capture an era when long-play records were the latest in technology and hula-hoops were the rage.

Fashion  -  Interest in fashion increased as the city grew, and changes in clothing reflected the new prosperity. Local newspapers carried more fashion photos than today, answering peoples’ desire to be up to date in their clothing.

  News today; gone tomorrow  -  The news stories that people talk about soon stop being news. Here are some items that made the news when Prince George was the fastest growing city in Canada.
