Lena and Thomas Gushul immigrated to Canada in the beginning of the 20th century, they married in 1914, and opened their first photo studio in Coleman, AB sometime in 1917 or 1918. These Ukrainian Canadian photographers left a wonderful legacy: in addition to a rich collection of negatives and photographs, they also saved hundreds of letters written by their relatives, friends, as well as the Gushul Studio patrons. This publication consists of two volumes: the first volume is dedicated to the history of the Gushul Photo Studio and its production. The second volume contains a selection of personal letters from the Gushul archives housed at the Crowsnest Museum & Archives. The authors of this publication hope that the reader will share their love and appreciation for the talent of these photographers and the beauty of their works.
