Archives Moment: Head Turner

In this week’s Archives Moment, you’ll see one of the photographs in our archives that gets a lot of people’s attention, Wayne Gretzky posing with a Pro Stars Cereal box. It is one of the many photographs taken by renowned St. Albert photographer, Victor Post.

The Victor Post fonds is the group of photographs that were donated to us in 2012: https://archives.museeheritage.ca/victor-post-fonds.

The fonds include a substantial number of photographs that cover local, provincial, and national events and people.
