Archive Pictures
The four pictures below were sent to me by Mr. Kenneth J. Friedt.

First 3 were taken in 1912, and last one in 1914
Ken bought some old negatives, at a garage sale, and after developing, this was a small sample of them.
Sad to say the photographer is not known. All we know is he worked on the Railroad,
and was very likely part of the engineering, surveying team.

Ken sent the negatives to the SK Archives, for safe keeping, but before he did that,
He shared them with me.
Most of these can be seen in my Roche Percee Pages.
Ken Friedt, ca:1910 Photos
But now I am finally getting around to making pages, \ for the few places that were not Roche Percee photos.
Hope you enjoy them.

Negative no 64, Street Car, Moose Jaw, Feb. 10, 1912

Negative no 63, Moose Jaw Shops etc., from 6th Ave. Bridge, Feb. 10, 1912

Lots of History recorded for the City of Moose Jaw,
so will not be researching any more for this page.

Tunnels of Moose Jaw, Al Capone Story
Seen this myself a few years ago,
and it was very entertaining, and educational.
Note- there has never been one bit of photographic proof,
Capone was ever in Moose Jaw,
but first hand accounts of meeting him,
exist in at least 6 persons.
Was he or wasn't he?
Same for Bienfait SK, and Lakelse Lake BC, near me.
Be nice to find a picture, hotel registry entry, or a receipt etc.
If you find one, it would be worth a lot.
