L.B. Foote was Winnipeg's premiere commercial photographer during the city's exuberant period of rapid growth in the early 1900s. His images of the General Strike and of visiting royalty have become national treasures. This collection by the "Dean of Canadian press photographers" recreates the glory and sheer vitality of that era, but also documents the social injustices and poverty that accompany boom and boosterism.

Foote's photographs of the wealthy luxuriating at the Canoe Club, baseball games at Wesley Park, immigrant families and their homes, eccentric local characters and commercial architectural landmarks portray the excitement and the growing pains of a city at the crux of tremendous social change.
