"Engaging, eclectic, and sometimes quirky...new perspective on the city’s history" ~ Bill Waiser, Saskatchewan historian
Do you know how Saskatoon got its name? (Hint: it's an old Cree story.) And why Nutana is called Nutana? What was the first location of Saskatoon in 1881 and why did it move to Broadway and Main? How many bridges have crossed the river (not counting those washed away by ice)? What is the oldest house still standing today? How did Saskatoon grow from a dusty prairie railway town to a thriving city of bridges?
Here are some of my favourite archival photos from Saskatoon's history. Do you recognize any of these faces and places?
