This site features archival photographs and finding aids to the City of Edmonton Archives fonds and collections. Although we are adding digital and digitized material, you may need to come to the Archives to view some documents.
The vaults are open and we're at full reference service again!
If you have been waiting to see material from the collection, please arrange a time to visit with the Reference Desk at 780-496-8711 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
