1952 - Traffic on Granby St. Do you see any familiar buildings? Let's be honest, it wouldn't be that bad to get stuck in this particular traffic jam.

Today's artifact is a ballet box from the Loyal Orange Lodge. White is for (yes) , black is against (no). Used for secret ballet decisions. One would grab their chosen marble and place it in the box without being able to see the other marbles.

Robertsons Bakery, Lea Bridge Road. They closed for good in 2013 but let me take a bunch of pics during their last days. A much missed bakery. .

Teddy Roosevelt arrived at the Great Northern Depot in Wallace, Idaho on May 26, 1903. He was presented with a souvenir in a pyramid shape inscribed with a dedication to him, and saying, "The Gold, Silver, Lead and Copper in this Souvenir were extracted from the mines of the Coeur d'Alenes" (quoted from "Historic Wallace, Idaho and My Unforseen Ties" by Tony Bamonte). His speech that day addressed the importance of education, the brave deceased men of the Civil War, and the Spanish American War. Before he left, he was entertained at the home of Levi and May Arkwright Hutton. His next stop was Spokane's Patsy Clark Mansion. It was the first time that a sitting president had visited Spokane.

The building in which the Westlock Pioneer museum is now housed was once a swimming pool until it was converted into the museum in 1991. While it may not be a pool any longer, the building is still a lovely, cool spot to be on a toasty day like today!  #westlockpioneermuseum #westlockhistory #localhistory #travelalberta #albertamuseums
