An invaluable guide to help you identify the place and date when a photograph was taken. Many family history researchers have boxes of photographs, but do not know who is depicted in the photo nor when or where it was taken.

This book lists individual photographers, where they worked and when. That means that if you have a photograph that includes a photographer's stamp or other identification you can easily find out when and where that picture was taken. Oftentimes that information will help you to identify who is in the picture.
    An example: If you have a picture with the photographer's stamp of "J. T. Ashley" you can lookup J. T. Ashley in the every-name index, see that this person appears on page 82. Flip to page 82 and you will learn that J. T. Ashley. was a photographer who worked in Cartwright, Manitoba from 1892 to 1894.
The book is organized by province/territory, then by municipality within each province. The photographers are then listed under the name of the town in which they worked. Those who worked in several towns appear in all of the towns with the years that they worked in that specific town noted. To search by photographer's name or studio name, use the every-name index.

This fully indexed guide provides the names and operating dates of 3044 commercial photographers. Number of photographers listed in each province/territory:
  • Alberta - 602
  • British Columbia - 1140
  • Manitoba - 773
  • Saskatchewan - 510
  • Yukon Territory - 190
Well over 400 municipalities are included in the listings. Number of different municipalities listed in each province:
  • Alberta - 93
  • British Columbia - 114
  • Manitoba - 93
  • Saskatchewan - 119
  • Yukon Territory - 4
Those who consult The Western Canada Photographers List (1860-1925) will find it useful for identifying when and where photographs were taken. Social historians value this resource as another tool to help track the West's dynamic visual heritage.
