As much of Lethbridge closes and people stay home, we want to help you experience the city digitally. So over the next while, we're going to look back at classic blog posts and past exhibits at local attractions and share them on our page. Keep reading (and checking back) to learn more about Lethbridge.
Learn about an iconic Lethbridge landmark — the Lethbridge Railway Viaduct. For over 100 years the high-level bridge has stood and been a part of the landscape of Southern Alberta. Discover the local history from the Galt Museum & Archives exhibition from 2009 — The Mighty Bridge.
Today would have been the @londonlandmarkshalf which we were running to raise money for @alzheimerssoc & @alzheimersresearchuk but understandably it is postponed..... so the organisers challenged everyone to do a #LocalLandmark#solo run and you know what .... it was pretty bloody nice! #Birmingham - I forgot how pretty you are! Under the current circumstances it was amazing to get out and appreciate everything, feel so lucky to live in such a lovely place and have so many wonderful people around me 💕
I WILL complete this run at some point and wanted to say thank you so much to everyone who has sponsored us so far, we are getting close to our target and it means so much for such an amazing cause 😘 #ExpectNothingAppreciateEverything
Historic First Presbyterian Church on Third Street. The church was organized in 1804, originally sharing space with the Waterford Reformed Church. The original 1826 building was destroyed by the devastating 1913 flood in Waterford. But luckily the beautiful stained glass windows from 1897 and the large organ from the building's 1865 enlargement were salvaged and incorporated into this building. The bell purchased in 1834 by the church also managed to be recovered. The cornerstone of this building was laid August 2, 1914 and it has been serving its community since its first service on Easter Sunday April 4, 1915. While the future use of this building may be in question, the beauty and historic significance of it is certain. #waterfordny#upstateny#saratogacounty#history#architecture#historicarchitecture#presbyterianchurch#nationalhistoricdistrict#stainedglass#church#organmusic#locallandmark#heritage
So today I will spending Mother’s Day alone. This is the first time in 21 years and it’s shit. Really shit. My son is at uni and is choosing to self isolate. I agree with him but I still miss him. It’s been 3 months since I’ve seen him. I am going to attempt my virtual local landmark half next week starting at Southend hospital finishing at my parents. I can’t see them as they are fragile and can’t risk being around anyone so I’ll wave at them from the window. If however we go on lock down I did 14 miles today. Love my family and hate being unable to do anything. #runner#locallandmark#southendhospitalcharity#littlelegsrunning#run#runnersofinstagram#runnersofinsta#f **ked
My town part 8: Solitude House, appropriately named for these times, is one of the town’s most significant properties. It was built as the home for the manager of Union Iron Works, which played an important role in the Revolutionary War, producing cannon balls and rifle barrels. The oldest portion of the house dates to 1712; it was doubled in size in 1755, and extensively remodeled in the 1850s. It retains a high level of architectural integrity and occupies a beautiful site on the banks of Lake Solitude. The property was acquired by the Borough as open space in 2002, and Solitude House is regularly open to the public.

Day 21 - change:
Our business has changed a great deal this year, and I have a feeling it will be changing even more in the near future due to these uncertain times.
I recently joined my Mum in our glass studio; introducing bespoke silver settings for the glass jewellery, polymer clay jewellery and taking over the stained glass production and workshops.
Our studio has been renovated, with plans for the gallery area to be next. We're not sure how this situation will affect us, we are currently still open to the public and are taking every precaution to ensure safety. It may be necessary to set up a wee online shop or etsy page to sell if we are unable to stay open 🤔
To our valued customers, friends and family
We have made the difficult decision to temporarily close due to COVID-19. We tried to remain open for take out, allowing only one family in at a time but felt we should do more to keep everyone safe and healthy. We know many of you were excited and happy to come and visit for a cone, as we are known as one of the first signs of spring. However, upon further reflection, we have decided we do not want to encourage people to leave their homes. Though this decision was a difficult one to make, we know with certainty that it is absolutely the right one.
Looking forward to brighter days and serving you when we know it is safe to do so.
Stay healthy and stay home. ❤️Justin and Jen DeLuca and family #amherstburg#icecream#frozenyogurt#locallandmark#windsoressex
Until further notice, all Heritage Square buildings, including the Rosson House, Visitor Center, Foundation Offices, The Bungalow museum store, and the Heritage Gallery are TEMPORARILY CLOSED.
The good news -- these buildings have survived two World Wars, the Great Depression, urban renewal, various recessions, and even Life without Air Conditioning (*gasp!*). However, though we’re temporarily closing, we are not giving up! We will still be with you on social media and on our website, sharing the history of Heritage Square and Phoenix, and encouraging everyone to do what we all can to support one another during this unprecedented time.
Stay healthy and safe, and we hope to see you in person soon!💚

Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours. I have much to be thankful for. My kids, family, friends, baby Yoda, and thankful for those that inspire me, support me, and encourage me to do my Instagram thing. I appreciate the people who enjoy my photography and share it with their friends and family. It means a lot. Big shout-out to those first responders, military, and medical staff that are working and cannot be home to celebrate with their friends and family. Thank you for your service.
Normally, I'd have done a roll call of local photographers that are dope (did it last year and before that), but hosting and cooking Thanksgiving dinner is taxing. I just want to have a cup of coffee and carrot cake, and go shoot some landscapes. 😴
Oh BTW, I dropped about 50 photos that I took on the Navajo Nation on my Facebook page (same handle). There's some that were never posted here on Instagram. Go check it.
More local landscape Inspiration today at Leighton Moss in Silverdale. So many subtle colour palettes, textures and linear details to work with here plus the obligatory cute robin photo! Check out my stories if you want to hear him 🎶
