Below is a street scene in an unidentified town or village near Prince Albert, ca. 1905 to 1910. The photo is from the collection of Prince Albert photographer William James, who operated the City Art Studio.

Saskatchewan Archives (R-A4434)

This image is a good representation of an early prairie community. It shows false fronted commercial buildings, modes of transportation and even some cows for a pastoral effect. It is evident that James was an astute photographer. Unfortunately, we don’t know the name of the community and do not have a precise date for the photograph.

Date: ca. 1905-1910

  1. Cool to see cattle in harness — or are those oxen? I’m not really sure if there’s a difference.
