Collection consists of photographs and related records created by a wide variety of sources and collected by the City of Winnipeg Archives and Records Control Branch. The photographs were originally collected as part of a proposed Winnipeg museum; further records were added to the collection after being transferred from various City of Winnipeg departments or received as unsolicited donations from the public. The photographs depict municipal government activities and infrastructure, geographical features, business and personal activities. In addition to municipal governments, creators of the photographs include professional photographers, private individuals and various publishers.
Photographs of seven of seven Winnipeg Mayors made by various photo companies. Mayors included are Thomas William Taylor, Thomas Gilroy, Alexander Macdonald, Alexander Logan, Thomas Ryan, Alfred Pearson, and Henry Shaver Wesbrook.
Photographs of a parade celebrating Winnipeg's 75th anniversary. The photos are taken on Portage Avenue between Colony/Memorial and Balmoral Streets. The parade features marching bands, baton twirlers, clowns, celebrities, floats of various businesses, organizations, and ethnic communities, as well as members of the Blackfoot Nation. There is no apparent order to the photos, as photos of the same float can be found several photos away from each other.
