    I've picked up some old books that have had old family photos stuck in them. I'll check some of them out when I get home and scan them in tomorrow.

    here are some prints I got from a relative. these are all re-prints of old prints in the manitoba archives. They were used for some kind of history project at a school years ago, but I managed to snag them before they were destroyed after the school cleaned house. not much info on dates, but you can guess just by looking at most of them:
