Dive, lands face down in the grass, beer cup in mid air, fish eye lens narrowly misses being splashed. Best garter toss ever!
Such a scary photo to shoot. Wet slippery cliff rocks a few hundred feet above a roaring waterfall canyon!
Earlier this year Campbell Peat donated a pile of very old photographs to the Galt Museum. I had the opportunity to help preserve and document these historically significant photos for the Galt Archives. Below Peat holds a photo of his relative William Stafford at one of very first mine entrances in Lethbridge. Above Campbell Peat flips through the book “Nineteenth Century Lethbridge” his relative Annie Laurie Stafford Peat wrote. Below is a my restored version of the photograph. -Entrance to No. 1 Drift Mine with William Stafford on the right and an employee, McLean, on the left. The machine is an air-powered cutting device; approximate date is 1883.-
