A Large Scale Photo Exhibit of Rat Portage / Kenora
January 17, 2019 – March 30, 2019

The Lake of the Woods Museum presents Our Town, an exhibit of 22 super sized images from Kenora’s past. This exhibit features photos from the Museum’s collection in a way that you’ve never seen them before. Each photo was selected by Museum staff based on content, curiosity, and visual interest. The images are powerful records of our community’s history and include town views, First Nations communities, sporting events, social gatherings, landscapes, community events, lake scenes and people, to name a few.

The size of the images shows the photos in a brand new light and allows one to see details never before seen. The images literally burst off the walls and our hope is that they will evoke memories and stories and that you will learn something more about our town through these compelling and interesting photographs.

Please join us for this interesting exploration of Our Town through the photographic record we present.
