Edmonton Album by Jo-Anne Christensen
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This album is a collection of sentimental journeys into Edmonton's past -- a time when a dime was all that was needed to see a movie, and couples skated across the glassy surface of a frozen lake that is now gone. These photos illustrate many important historical events and changes in Edmonton, from its fur-trading beginnings through decades of tremendous growth. Through the lens of a camera we revisit soldiers returning home from war; the first train rumbling into town; the first school, hospital, and business; the building of the Legislature and demolition of the original fort; the desperation of the "Dirty Thirties"; and the success of the initial oil boom. More than one hundred and fifty black-and-white images allow us to travel back in time to revisit Edmonton's growth and its people. Through these photos, moments in Edmonton's past are captured eternally, rich with details that characterise the era. An Edmonton Album is the city's memory -- in pictures.

Author Biography

Jo-Anne Christensen lives and writes full-time in Edmonton, Alberta. Her background includes ten years in radio broadcasting, publishing short fiction in blue buffalo magazine, and writing for amateur theatre and feature-length films. Although she devotes much time to hanging out in the spookiest of places, Jo-Anne has yet to personally "make contact." Perhaps in her next life...but that's another book.
