Manitoba Photographers: William Johnston (?-?)

Link to:
Work locations | Samples | Sources

Johnston partnered with Israel Bennetto at 360½ Main Street, Winnipeg in October 1880, but the relationship was dissolved two months later. In January 1881, he then joined with James D. Hall in the firm of Johnston & Hall but this firm was also short-lived. By March 1882, Hall had formed a partnership with Skene Lowe in the firm Hall & Lowe. Johnston worked alone for the remainder of his career, first in Winnipeg and later in West Selkirk (Selkirk). He took photographs while on trips across Western Canada; for example, in 1897, he photographed a group of Manitoba men heading to the Klondike Gold Rush, in Victoria, British Columbia.
