Search | Image Archive | Reference | Communities | POV | Lesson Plans | Credits

TimeLinks is designed to help users explore themes and ideas in Manitoba History between 1910 and 1920. It provides a general overview of the period and to assist users in the selection of topics for essays and projects.

The TimeLinks Image Archive gives you access to over two thousand images from Manitoba's history. While the images are primarily photographs, the collection also contains maps, pamphlets, brochures, posters, advertisements, and selected pages from newspapers, magazines and product catalogues.

TimeLinks is concerned primarily with the decade from 1910 to 1920. There are also some more recent photographs, primarily of representative housing types, and they are used where no photograph contemporary to the period is available.
