We’re back with Part Three of our series about Historical Wildlife Photos. Here you’ll find another collection of photos featuring various species from across this province. As with the previous two posts, which you can find here and here, there are some bad habits depicted in these photographs. Please do not replicate any of these behaviours as it’s dangerous to both humans and animals. We hope you enjoy this stroll down memory lane.
The photos above were collected from the Glenbow Archives, with the exception of the final ten, which were obtained from the Provincial Archives of Alberta. If you’re interested, additional information can be found for each photograph on the Glenbow website by searching the identification number that is printed on the photo. There is also the option to purchase a high resolution copy. If you search the object number that can be found in the photo captions, you will find additional information about the photographs on the Provincial Archives website. Stay tuned for additional posts featuring historical photos from across Alberta. We’d love to know what you think in the comment section below.

based treatment program for youth working to overcome addiction. Tyler is also a volunteer with the GOT Parks initiative, which aims at reconnecting Canada’s youth with our national, provincial, and territorial parks. During his time away from work, Tyler enjoys outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking, and snowboarding, team sports, travelling, photography, spending time with good friends, and being at home with his wife and German Shepherd, Rome.
