A series of very old photographs taken by my great-grandfather and grandfather who founded Souvenir Photo Studio in the early 1900’s, in Radville, Saskatchewan.

That is my Dad on the right and his younger brother Pierre on the left. I am not sure about the other two.

Radville, Saskatchewan has a very interesting history during this time period with many American gangsters following the Missouri -Coteau trail to our area, including Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

    How great it is that you have these and are sharing them. So cool to look back in time thru them. Look at the clothing styles.. The hats and diff lenght ties.. Suit cases on the roof. Love seeing these Al.. Hope you many more to come.

    I love old photos and the stories in them. This is very well done. So you come from a photography background huh? How cool is that??? Thank you for sharing this !!! (and the info!!)

  • I guess it didn’t hurt to have a little ancestry in photography. After taking 5,000 photos in Europe, and working on them nightly, I just want to put the camera down for a while….

    Enjoyed this image.. Did you not like this in sepia? Thought this would have been perfect subject matter for that medium.. Colourful history……
