Ref Number

Item Date
ca 1932


A still photograph from the 1932 film 'This Generation: A Prairie Romance' - a film which captures the accomplishments made by Saskatchewan settlers between 1870 and 1930.


When Dick Bird produced this film it was 1932 and Saskatchewan was just entering the dirty thirties. The great depression and drought years would dramatically change the province. Created before those changes came about, 'This Generation: A Prairie Romance' stands out as a film portraying the accomplishments made by the settlers up to 1930. The settlement experiences between 1870 and 1930 changed the prairie landscape and led to the establishment of an agricultural society where strength came from many peoples. The enormous sense of optimism and pride in what the settlers had accomplished can be seen in the film as the hero struggles between marriage and staying on the land she loves. The 40 minute film has been divided into 6 chapters, each with a particular focus.
