HOLD — DO NOT PUBLISH –Exploring photos:

Aboriginal Canadians annually held a pow-wow and clay pigeon shooting competition in town. This 1913 picture was taken at the entrance to the Niagara Golf Club, with the corner of Front and Gate streets in the background. In the picture, it would appear that some none of the Indians dressed appropriately for the occasion. With full ceremony and regalia consisting of, war paint, blankets, tomahawks and dances, this was a family event. In the evening management of the Queen's Royal Hotel arranged dancing in their pavilion.
