Canup, Daniela and I went shopping on Alberta yesterday afternoon and came across a new shop called Ampersand. Its a gallery and shop specializing in vintage photographs. The owner, Miles, has boxes of old snapshots, displays with the old stereoscopic viewers, books on photography, and many matted pictures ready for sale. He calls it "an organized mess of books, objects, ephemera, fine art, design & photography." I bought a small piece involving a very old black and white snapshot of the sky. You can rummage through his photos on line and buy one for yourself for five bucks.
