Vintage Views of Birtle

The Birdtail Country Museum is fortunate to have a collection of glass negatives and photos of early Birtle.

Nearly all the pictures after 1903 were by Mr. Arthur Lawrence, who lived in Birtle and took thousands of pictures of Birtle and the surrounding area.

Charles Flower also took many pictures of the Birtle area. We are grateful to his descendants for donating his photo album to the Birdtail Country Museum.

Other historical views of Birtle can be found in the Bruce Peel Special Collections Library at the University of Alberta.
