  • [ca. 1900]-2014

Consists of analogue and digital records donated by the City of Winnipeg’s Public Works Department with ca. 2000 photographs including slides, negatives, and polaroids. Many photos capture public parks, boulevards, streets, and playgrounds created for the daily functions of the department including presentations, research, and documentation. Photo albums created by municipal parks boards such as the St. James Parks Board before Winnipeg amalgamation were collected by Public Works and depict the parks created and maintained by the St. James Parks Board. Other historical photos and prints of public parks, and recreational activities were collected for research and display purposes.
