By North Battleford Archives
March 2, 2018 - 1:20pm

City of North Battleford Historic Archives Corner Store Presentation will be Wednesday March 7, 2018 at 7:00 pm at the North Battleford Library.

The City of North Battleford Historic Archives will be presenting the “Corner Stores” display by Volunteer Leola Macdonald.

The focus of our display will be on a collection of photographs and textual records pertaining to the “Corner Stores in North Battleford from 1905 – 1980”. This display will include approximately 50 interactive display boards showing the locations and owners of these valuable business in our community. As our community has grown and developed, besides the need for electricity, schools, churches, hospitals and infrastructure, there was a great need for the small “Corner Stores”. Things started to change when the larger stores set up location in our community.

The City of North Battleford Historic Archives Volunteers will be in attendance: Dawne Tokaryk, Val FitzGerald, Larry Kulyk, Bill Wells, Hugh McIvor, Ken Sanders, Terry Lumsdon (Volunteer Chair) and Tammy Donahue Buziak (Archivist).

We hope to see you at the Library for some interesting discussion on the Old Corner Stores of North Battleford !!
