Edmonton is a city that has completely transformed itself.  Whether it is the growth in the downtown core, suburban expansion or renewal of existing neighborhoods, Edmonton has truly become a modern vibrant city.

This page is devoted to documenting Edmonton's more recent past.  These photographs are not old in the vintage sense, but still show how much the city has changed in a short span of time.
