Oral History Interviews

In the 1960s, the Archives and Landmarks Committee conducted oral history interviews of several Edmontonians including private citizens and retired City staff. When the City of Edmonton Archives was formed in 1971, the Archives took over the project and continued with the interviews, eventually expanding the scope of the project to encompass contemporary City Councillors and Mayors.

1998 Aerial Photographs

This subseries consists of aerial photographs taken of the City of Edmonton and surrounding areas for the purposes of land surveying. Each section consists of images that have been stitched together to form composites from the individual discs on which the images were stored. Each section, numbered 1 to 7, corresponds to the disc number.

Each square of the City map (above) is comprised of a sequence of individual images. Each image file is watermarked with its original file name, which is comprised of an 'y' and 'x' coordinate (yyy+xx(n)) where n represents the number in the sequence of images for that square.

Example: The file name of the center image of square 931+28 would be '9312813.jpg.'

Map Collection

This series contains maps that were found in the collection of the City of Edmonton Archives. The maps had no provenance, and were therefore combined into a single series.

Reference Collections
