Images of Manitoba Communities
This collection was twenty years in the making and comes from dozens of sources.
I've visited 90 percent of these places and most of the modern photos are my own.
I've done my best to source and identify the archival photos, but my first priority was to get them sorted and available.
The collection is something I use on a daily basis and I often present the photos cropped and editted slightly when necessary, so that they are ready for use in online and print publications. In many cases higher resolution photos, unretouched photos are available on the originals sites or in my collection.
Often more information is also available from the source - my first mission is to have the photos available for use.
Some sources deserve special mention and I encourage you to visit them...
