This exhibit of souvenir images of communities in Saskatchewan's picturesque Qu'Appelle Valley is drawn from the large collection of early Western Canadian postcards developed by the Special Collections Department of the University of Saskatchewan Library. Most of the cards were printed in the first two decades of the 20th century, the Golden Age of the picture postcard. This site has been prepared in conjunction with the exhibition "Qu'Appelle: Tales of Two Valleys" produced by Saskatoon's Mendel Gallery for presentation in Kleinberg (Ontario), Saskatoon and Regina. The card titles reproduce the text utilized on the original cards and local call numbers. The department would welcome the opportunity to acquire additional Saskatchewan cards by gift or purchase.
