In 1981, under the direction of Don Williams, Angéline Gobeil and Elizabeth Royer began the huge project of writing a history of Beaumont, Alberta. Soon after they began, a committee of fourteen members was formed. In 1985 <em>Beaumont: Histoire de Beaumont et district, 1885-1960/ Beaumont: History of Beaumont and district, 1885-1960</em> was published by the Beaumont History Book Committee, under the auspices of the St. Vital Senior Citizens' Club in Beaumont.
Scope and content
The collection consists of images, originally dating 1893 to 1982, of the Beaumont, Alberta area, featuring schools, churches, houses, farms and ranches, sawmills, service stations, post offices, blacksmith/garage, stores, bands, baseball teams and parks, statue installation, landmarks, celebrations and weddings, farm and construction machinery, harvesting and threshing, automobiles, horses, tobogganing, wells, a tug-o-war, families and local pioneers, and views of Beaumont.
