Drawings of Early Elk Point Elmer Bjornstad

As dad retired I asked him to draw some of Elk Point and Areas buildings for the upcoming Websites the Elk Point Historical Society was planning to get going. He studied photos and other drawings and made the following drawings for us to use on pages we developed.  These were early Elk Point street scenes from photos and the drawings of Ralph Krevenchuk.
