The little church on the prairies. by 


The small and abandoned church in Dorothy, Alberta, Canada. This image was made on a very cold winter evening and is a composition of two exposures. The village of Dorothy got its post office in 1908 and never grew to more than 100 souls. Still, it supported two churches, a United Church from 1932 to 1961, and a Roman Catholic church from 1944 to 1967, the subject of this photograph.

    Love this photo. Just beautiful. Do you know any of the history of this church. How old it is or what it was called. What denomination..Catholic or Protestant? Best regards, Carol

    Hello Carol,
    The village of Dorothy dates back to the early 20th century. It got its post office in 1908 and never grew to more than 100 souls. Still, it supported two churches, a United Church from 1932 to 1961 and a Roman Catholic church from 1944 to 1967. The Catholic church is the subject of this photograph taken from a window of the United church.

    Perfect lighting and there are no footprints in the snow adding to the idea of abandonment, great composition.
