Title: Creston Museum (Creston, B.C.)
               
Dates: ca. 1880s-1920s

Collection Number: 2015-P-034

Quantity: 46 items

Abstract: Black and white photographs and post cards that include images of people, city and town life, businesses, schools, children and agricultural scenes, in North Dakota and/or the Upper Great Plains. Identified images include a man, probably Peter Vandemark, in his bachelor shack, Ambrose (N.D.); men working at the Gille-Miller lignite coal mine, Flaxton (N.D.); and a group outside McMonagle and Son Hardware and Furniture, probably in Kenmare (N.D.). The majority of the prints was made from glass plate negatives, and appear to have been removed from a photograph album. The same farmstead appears in several of the photographs. The creator and collector of the images is unknown, but may have lived in Ward County (N.D.).

Provenance: The collection was donated to the State Historical Society of North Dakota by the Creston Museum (Creston, British Columbia, Canada) on June 19, 2015. A donor brought the images into the Museum without knowing the exact provenance of the photographs.

Property Rights: The State Historical Society of North Dakota owns the property rights to this collection.
