Series consists of photographs collected by Catherine Macdonald and used to author the book, “A City at Leisure: An Illustrated History of Parks and Recreation Services in Winnipeg, 1893-1993”. The book was coordinated by the History and Archives subcommittee of the 100th Anniversary Committee of the Parks and Recreation Department to celebrate the department’s 100th anniversary. The subcommittee began its work in 1993 and the book was published in 1995. The photographs were reproduced from various sources including the Archives of Manitoba.
Series consists of photographs created, commissioned, or otherwise collected by the Metropolitan Corporation of Greater Winnipeg for promotional and internal use, as well as some accompanying textual material. Photographs are primarily prints, but also include negatives and slides. Photographs consist largely of Winnipeg parks, streets, bridges, city employees, Metro Councilors and Administration. Most promotional photographs have cut lines or captions provided for publication purposes.
A very small number of photographs were taken before and after the Metropolitan Corporation era (1960-1971). The older photographs were gathered for promotional purposes and the more recent photographs were likely added by the Information Services section.
