A view of the railway and traffic bridges over the South Saskatchewan river in Saskatoon.


The first attempt at settlement in the Saskatoon area was by the Temperance colony in 1883. Until the rail line from Regina to Prince Albert was completed in 1890 there was little growth. When an additional transcontinental railway was built through Saskatoon the population soared and the 'city of bridges' took its place as one of the key hubs of Saskatchewan.
