Rate this:

This album is a collection of sentimental journeys into Edmonton's past - a time when a dime was all that was needed to see a movie, and couples skated across the glassy surface of a frozen lake that is now gone.

These photos illustrate many important historical events and changes in Edmonton, from its fur-trading beginnings through decades of tremendous growth. Through the lens of a camera we revisit soldiers returning home from war; the first train rumbling into town; the first school, hospital, and business; the building of the Legislature and demolition of the original fort; the desperation of the "Dirty Thirties"; and the success of the initial oil boom.

More than one hundred and fifty black-and-white images allow us to travel back in time to revisit Edmonton's growth and its people. Through these photos, moments in Edmonton's past are captured eternally, rich with details that characterize the era. An Edmonton Album is the city's memory - in pictures.
