Vintage Regina

Sask Power building on Victoria Avenue being constructed

A friend recently turned me on to this great facebook page that people are using to share old photos of Regina. It’s called, quite simply, Vintage Regina. There are some great shots of the city and I like the little discussions that happen around each photo – what date the photo was taken, what people remember about going to a certain place during that time (e.g. seeing Star Wars at the Roxy theatre).

Here’s another fun page to check out with old photos of the Sask Power building being constructed and some interior shots – so lovely!

RUE ran a few ‘Before and After‘ pieces awhile back that compared older photos like these to the present-day conditions. It was always interesting to see what had and had not changed. I’d love to feature some before and after comparisons for many of the photos on Vintage Regina if anyone is interested in taking that on!
