High Resolution Photo Gallery
First-time visitors should view the instructions page to learn how get the most out of the gallery, including how to find specific subjects, and how to view, download, and print the high resolution images. This Photo Gallery provides access to high resolution historical photos of the Northwest Territories for personal use only, any other use requires permission and payment of usage fees.
Note that the high resolution images are in the form of large JPEG files and can take some time to download on slower internet connections. File sizes are typically in the range of 0.5-1.5 megabytes, and are displayed with thumbnail versions of the images.
The bulk of the material we have in our holdings was created 30 to 90 years ago. In most cases we have no idea under what conditions the records were created, nor can we say with any certainty who owns copyright. However this does not absolve the recipient of responsibility for ascertaining and respecting any copyright restrictions that may apply. The NWT Archives is in no way responsible for any copyright violations.
