Looking for historic photos of the Peace Region? The Alberta Heritage Digitization Project: Grande Prairie may have what you are looking for. Unlike the Glenbow Museum’s online selection, this set of photos is large enough to look at in detail. You’ll find pictures of Grande Prairie, Spirit River, Dunvegan, and of people, buildings, and the old way of life. There is a particularly interesting colour photo of Dunvegan Park in the 60s, looking strikingly different than it does today and than it did a few years farther back.
If you have some historical photos or know where to find them, Town Spirit would like to hear from you! Send along a post of photos/words or leave a comment below. Much appreciated!
