In addition to the house itself, Roedde Museum offers visitors the chance to enjoy several temporary exhibitions throughout the house. These displays are composed of objects from the museum’s own collection, complemented with borrowed pieces and they are always artistically set up by some of our docents.

 Pioneers of Print

pioneers of print

 

“Pioneers of Print” tells the story of two migrant families who created their own sites of culture, community, and commerce at the turn of the 20th century.
The exhibit will feature the history of Vancouver’s first bookbinder and printer, German-born Gustav Roedde, through examples of his family’s early print work and historic photographs. Along with Gustav, Hon Fong Lam and Lat Tong Lam opened the city’s first Chinese-English print shop, Ho Sun Hing Printers. This display will feature examples of Chinese character lead type, family photographs from the business’s century-long standing, and samples of the print shop’s work, which are generously on loan from the Lam family.
Through their businesses, both of these pioneering families contributed to the history and building of metropolitan Vancouver through industry, communication, and language as we know it today.
