John Henry Gano photographs

John Henry Gano's photographs, which date primarily from 1909 to 1914, are rich in views of the town of Wainwright, homesteading in the Wainwright area, Grand Trunk Railway construction, and the buffalo and cattalo at the nearby Buffalo Park. A brief biography of Gano is in the Archives Main Catalogue.

You may view all the currently digitized Gano photographs (about 230) in date order.

You may search the Biggs photographs by subjects, places, people or dates by using the Archives Photographs search screen. Always enter Gano in the 'Photographer/Illustrator' box to limit your findings to this photographer, then refine your search by entering search terms in the other boxes on the screen.
