Vintage Edmonton: Tragedy On The North Saskatchewan River, June 26, 1913


6 people lost their lives on the North Saskatchewan River June 26, 1913 in the worst loss of life at that time on the river in Edmonton's history. I've tried to compile as much of a complete story of this tragedy through the archives of the Bulletin, Journal, Capital, and other papers; much thanks to their reporting:
