Audio recording of Christine Meutzner's November 1998 presentation to the Nanaimo Historical Society about the creation and development of Nanaimo's community heritage register by the Nanaimo Community Heritage Commission, and its subsequent publication, "Columns, Cornices, & Coal: The Heritage Resources of Nanaimo." Meutzner introduces many of the buildings which appear in the book, outlining their history, significance, and architectural features. In a second, shorter recording from an unknown date, Meutzner gives another talk about the the Nanaimo Community Heritage Commission's publication, "Columns, Cornices, & Coal" and explains some of the resources that were used to compile the community heritage register including: building permits, blueprints, postcards, building files at the Nanaimo Community Archives, and photographs of houses, construction sites, and street scenes.
