Scope and content

Although the album does not contain manuscript annotations, many of the postcards possess captions identifying scenes in and around East End, Saskatchewan. The album contains images of the local landscape as well as of individuals captured in a variety of settings, both within the town site and outside its boundaries. The latter category of photographs includes several taken at a dam. There are also a number of images of cowboys and rodeo competitions.

Several of the rodeo postcards contain the date 17 July 1914. Although other images in the album are not explicitly dated, many would appear to be of a similar vintage. Several photographs capture individuals posing in front of a Royal North-west Mounted Police depot. Formed in 1873, the force took on its modern identity as the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in 1920.
