Biographical history

The Glenbow Archives has created this artificial collection from orphaned calendars which are not properly part of the archival fonds in our holdings, but which still have research and exhibition value. Many of the calendars are advertisements (advertiques) for businesses in Calgary and southern Alberta. These would probably have been given out to their regular customers.
