Biographical history

Alfred E. Cross (ca. 1890-1951) emigrated from England to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and ultimately settled in Lethbridge in 1920. By 1924, he established A.E. Cross Studio, a photography business which offered portraits, commercial photography, photo finishing and picture framing. Alfred Cross retired in 1948, and his son Reginald became manager of the studio. The name of the studio became A.E. Cross Photography in 1967 before reverting to its original name in 1973.
