Event Description

In spite of extreme challenges, early photographers were able to create both beautiful and informative images.  Government, military, scientific and commercial photographers recorded historical details, promoted businesses and reported events, creating an often romanticized vision of the disappearing Western frontier.  This exhibition is organized and circulated by the Glenbow Museum.

A selection of Blood, Blackfoot, Northwest Mounted Police and ranching artifacts from the Royal Alberta Museum and Musée Héritage Museum will be featured along with the photographs.
