A.E. Cross Studios photographs

A.E. Cross Studios' photographs, which date from the 1920s to 1961 (primarily the 1940s and 1950s), are rich in views of personalities, commerce, institutions, events and buildings in the Lethbridge area of Alberta, as well as photographs of Waterton Lakes National Park and Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park. A brief biography of Cross and history of the Studio are in the Archives Main Catalogue.
