Manitoba Photographers: Frank Jay Haynes (1853-1921)

Link to:
Catalogue | Samples | Sources

Although based in Fargo, Dakota Territory, and better known for his grand photographs of Yellowstone National Park, F. Jay Hayes visited Manitoba in mid-1881 at the invitation of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Near Selkirk, he boarded the Hudson’s Bay Company vessel Colvile for its seven-day circuit of Lake Winnipeg. Returning to Winnipeg, Haynes then traveled east on the new CPR line to Rat Portage [now known as Kenora], taking photos along the Winnipeg River. Then he went west, to the end of tracks a few miles west of Portage la Prairie, transferring to a horse-drawn wagon for the remainder of his trip to Fort Qu’Appelle, northeast of present-day Regina. He took 92 stereoviews during the course of his visit.
