Building Alberta

The Provincial Archives of Alberta selected a few photographs from our collection that documented the building of Alberta.

These photographs serve as a monument to those who built the province and as a reminder that for every construction project, an immense amount of work is needed before the finished project is opened for use.

Some of those achievements involve important events and prominent people. Most involve ordinary people doing ordinary and extraordinary things. Yet, it is the sum of their stories that helps define the character of a place and refine the essence of a people.
