2013 EXHIBIT: LOVE LETTERS TO TRANSCONA
The Transcona Historical Museum has a vast and varied collection, but the most personal and evocative artifacts we have are the over 10,000 photographs and letters that have been entrusted to us over the past 46 years. These objects tell us about the lives and loves of those who call Transcona home in a unique and powerful way. From turn of the century wedding portraits to the letters home of Transcona prisoners of war to the community-curated submissions wall, Love Letters to Transcona celebrates the stories of everyday Transconians, past and present.
