Prairie Ephemera Collection

  • FC 3234.2 P732
  • Collection
  • 1800s and 1900s

The Prairie Ephemera collection consists of a wide range of photographic and manuscript materials related to the social, economic, and cultural development of the Prairie Provinces. The photographic collection – which consists of both individual images and albums – is highly varied. Scenes of farm and urban life are both well represented. The textual materials are equally diverse, including letters, diaries, meeting minutes, political campaign materials, song books, stock certificates, performance programs and advertisements, among other things. These materials include first hand accounts from homesteaders and visitors to the region discussing the nature of Prairie life in the pioneer period and through the 20th Century.

PE001006 - Tour of Northern Hudson's Bay Company Posts

Unidentified photographer. Judging by the number of aerial photographs, those of bush planes, and the large number of Hudson’s Bay Company buildings and posts, this collection may document a tour of northern Hudson’s Bay Company posts in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario by someone linked with the HBC. Photographs of people usually show them holding fox furs. At least half of the photographs were taken during winter. Nearly all photographs are captioned on the back in pencil, and some are also numbered.
Places photographed include Fort McMurray (AB), Fort Chipewyan (AB), Embarras Portage (AB), Fort Vermilion (AB), Stony Rapids (SK), Moosonee (ON), Moose Factory (ON), Albany (ON), and Attawapiskat (ON).
A guide to the identified places is interleaved within the album.
In the group photograph, 42 adults stand on the steps of a building and smile for the camera. This photograph seems unrelated to the rest of the album.

B&W print, wide-angle photograph of cityscape.

Part of a collection of materials related to the planned Edmonton Civic Centre in the 1960s. In the early 1960s, Webb & Knapp, a large land development company, entered into an agreement with the City of Edmonton to develop a proposal for a new downtown civic centre. The agreement contained provisions such that Webb & Knapp would fund the cost of the proposal, and if the proposal were to be approved, Webb & Knapp would receive considerable land rights in the development area as compensation. However, were the proposal to be rejected, the proposal itself was to become property of the City of Edmonton. The proposal by Webb & Knapp was ultimately rejected, but not until after the City of Edmonton Planning Commission developed its own proposal that, Webb & Knapp argued, made significant use of the original proposal. Webb & Knapp sued the City of Edmonton, ultimately winning a decision on breach of copyright in 1970.
