The History Behind the West End Gallery

The History Behind the West End Gallery

We've had some time over that past months to dust off the archives at the West End Gallery.  One article stands out for us, after recently celebrating our 45th anniversary in business this past May.  

In 1975, a small gallery opened in the west end of Edmonton on 95 Avenue and 156 Street.  This article, showing its age by stating:

"The new West End Gallery is conveniently located on the northeast corner of 95th Ave and 156 St.  It has been located to fulfill the needs and desires of residents of the rapidly expanding southwest and western part of the city now so easily accessible by the Whitemud freeway"

Below is the full article as well as a close up that maybe a bit more readable.  We hope you enjoy going down memory lane as much as we did!
