  • Photographer's choice: Sometimes life rolls out in front of a photojournalist perfectly. Like the Sunday my dog went to a local mall to tell Santa what he wanted for Christmas. This brother and sister were ahead of us. They have different owners but double teamed Santa this year for old times sake. Only appearing online because of a tight paper the next day, I hope it puts a smile on your face as big as mine.

  • The Cadomin Building on Main Street where photographer L. B. Foote and partner G. James had their studio. As a side note it is interesting that there just happens to be two men standing still long enough to be in the photograph. Normally images from this time period would have had long exposures which would cause most people to be messy blurs.
