1000 Words - Pioneer Photographers in the Southwest Corner

Presented by:

The Municipality of Grassland

This project is a tribute to the significant contribution made by local photographers in preserving the past.
Names like Durrant & McArter from Hartney, and the Winnipeg Photo Company from Napinka, are prominent.
The work of early travellers such as Henry Youle Hind, and of the Boundary Commission also contributed to the local record.
