Dates of existence



Bordertown Publishing was a Vancouver-based direct-mail business, apparently established in 1964, which offered an extensive line of items useful to model railroading hobbyists. Its Photo Division operated from 1970 to 1978, selling photographic prints of Canadian and northwestern U.S. railroading operations for reference and display purposes. After the photo service ceased operations on 31 March 1978, the owners put the entire collection of negatives up for sale.
