Saskatoon History Review No. 30 is now available for purchase!
In this issue, we have four authors whose articles will pique the interest of a wide readership. Historian Megan Hubert delights us with a history of Saskatoon’s iconic Bessborough Hotel. Artist David Geary, who has a long –time interest in architecture, brings us a photographic overview of Saskatoon’s mid-century modern homes. Local historian Alan Morton takes us on a trip down memory lane with his history of the pedestrian bridge over the CN railway tracks. Finally, Nutana historian Dianne Wilson tells of her quest to identify some early Temperance Colony buildings at ‘Broadway and Main’. There are numerous photos throughout. You will notice two new names as co-editors for this issue, Linda Dietz and Peggy Sarjeant. Unfortunately, our former editor, Don Kerr, has had to step down for health reasons. We thank him for his long service to the Review and for his numerous suggestions for contributors. We send him our best wishes.
During the Covid 19 outbreak, we are temporarily suspending mailing of Saskatoon History Review;
however, you can still get your copy by phoning 306 229-5015 and arranging to pick it up.
Don’t miss out on this landmark 30th issue!
Due to the increased health risks posed by COVID-19 and in accordance with the guidelines put forth by the Saskatchewan Health Authority and the Public Health Agency of Canada, the Saskatoon Heritage Society has made the difficult decision to postpone our Annual Luncheon and Silent Auction that was slated to take place, Sunday, March 15th at the Sheraton Cavalier. All Luncheon tickets will be refunded. The safety of our guests is our primary concern and we will reschedule the event for later in 2020. Please watch our website and social media channels for this announcement.
We would like to thank all of our attendees and sponsors for their support for the Saskatoon Heritage Society and we hope to see you at our rescheduled luncheon.
