Saskatchewan Brewery in Medicine Hat?


The Saskatchewan Brewery in Alberta? 
Well, at the time, it would have been the North-West Territories.

The Saskatchewan Brewery was the first brewery in Medicine Hat, built by Thomas W. Ireland, who brewed "Saskatchewan" beer. It opened 1884 and closed in 1887 when the need for regulations for the brewing industry became an issue.

With cooler days coming, we start thinking of cozy sweaters.

From 1908, lots of ideas and plans for knitted and crocheted items.
