If you've been following this year's series on ghost towns, I'm sad to say it's over but I'm also glad to be starting something new. For our November/December issue we featured Lille in the Crowsnest Pass. You haven't heard of this once booming mining town? It's actually one of the more popular ghost towns in the area. With this popularity comes a flood of stories, news articles and Google searches, all about Lille. Some stories are credible, some not. This is where the fun part comes in.

Lethbridge living started the “Then and Now” series of articles, highlighting places in Lethbridge that have made a historical impact on our community, in the Jan./Feb. issue of 2010. So far we have featured Galt Gardens, the Brewery Garden, Barrack Square, Lethbridge Hotel, and in this issue, the Galt Hospital, now the Galt Museum & Archives. The 1910 wing of the Galt Hospital just happened to be celebrating its 100th anniversary this fall, so it seemed like a great opportunity to learn a little more about this establishment, and also feature the hospital in our history section.
