A reminder to members of City Daily Photo: the theme for February 1st is Streetscape.
From here, the Museum of History's narrative starts to examine the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th. The country was taking on more of a multi-ethnic character during this time, with new immigrants making new lives, especially so in the west.
The centrepiece in this area is a treasure of the Museum. St. Onuphrius Church is a Ukrainian Catholic Church that stood for years in Alberta. It was given to the Museum in 1996, and remains consecrated, still used on occasion for religious services.
