Another image from our trip south. This one made on the Stoney Indian Reserve at Morley, Alberta. The church, which overlooks the Bow River, was established in 1875 and named after George McDougall. This church is the second oldest building in Alberta still standing on it’s original frame. Another image done in the 5:8 ratio.

  1. Beautiful and unusual, I love it. What is the oldest building in Alberta?

  2. The oldest building still on it’s original foundation is the clerk’s quarters at Fort Victoria near present-day Smoky Lake dating from 1865. See the following link:
