Calgary Stampede 100th Anniversary
These ranching artifacts are part of a recently acquired collection at the Canada Agriculture Museum. They were donated by an Alberta family, the Banta family, who worked on cattle ranches since the beginning of the 20th century. They are part of a new exhibition at the museum to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede.
