Reprint: Paperchase

From the Paperchase column in the Books section of Saturday's Winnipeg Free Press, written by Bob Armstrong:

"The University of Manitoba is unveiling a time machine this week, but that doesn't mean their physics geniuses are in line for a Nobel Prize.

This time machine is the product of the University of Manitoba Press, author Esyllt Jones and photographer L.B. Foote.

Jones' book on the photographer, whose images of early Winnipeg captured the Winnipeg General Strike, the building of the Hotel Fort Garry and the essence of an early-20th-century Canadian city, is illustrated with 150 of Foote's photographs.

In addition to publishing the book, University of Manitoba Press has also put out a call for lost Foote photos and documented the effort to rediscover this piece of our past on a blog at

The book launch, at McNally Robinson, Wednesday at 7 p.m., includes a slide presentation and lecture on Foote and his work."
