Adrian Paton Photo collection Travelling Exhibit

Nov 16-Dec 14

We will be hosting the Saskatchewan History and Folklore Society’s exhibit of the photos collection of Adrian Paton.

Adrian Paton began to collect photographs in the late 1980’s when his grandmother’s photograph album was passed down to him. Since then, he has built an enormous photograph collection, totaling about 8,000 pieces.

The Saskatchewan History and Folklore Society and the University of Saskatchewan sponsored students who worked with Mr. Paton over two summers to digitize about 700 of the photos and record his knowledge about them. These photos are now available online on the SHFS website (www.shfs.ca).

This display features selected photos from the collection along with information designed to inspire people to reflect on the post,
