CMAGScsi 10 - Shoe Last

Deep Research Case 10: Shoe Last

The Canmore Museum & Geoscience Centre needs your help! We’re investigating some unknown objects in the collection and are looking for any information you may have about them. Every week, we’ll be posting a new case. If you have any information about the objects, please contact Collections Manager, Amanda Sittrop, at collections@cmags.org.

Fred Kazimer was born in Romania in 1884 and came to Canmore in 1906. He was a driver for the Canmore Mines as well as a local shoe mason. His tools are pictured. He moved to Tawatinaw to homestead around 1910 but moved back to Canmore around 1920. He operated his business out of his home, which was once located where the BMO building complex is now. Do you remember Fred? Please call the Museum and tell us your story. Read more

CMAGScsi 9 - Grotto Store sign

Deep Research Case 9: The Grotto

The Canmore Museum & Geoscience Centre needs your help! We’re investigating some unknown objects in the collection and are looking for any information you may have about them. Every week, we’ll be posting a new case. If you have any information about the objects, please contact Collections Manager, Amanda Sittrop, at collections@cmags.org.

“The Grotto” sign was donated to the Museum in 2009. At the time of the donation, we were told that The Grotto was a gift store on Main Street that started as a Fish ‘n’ Chips restaurant, then became The Grotto, followed by The Robin’s Roost and is now where The Avens Galley occupies. Did you shop at The Grotto? Did you know the owners? Please call the Museum and tell us your story.
