In my quest to photograph as many ghost towns as I can find, I kept coming across notes about a little gem called Lille, Alberta. Things looked great for Lille when it was first established in 1901. Within a few years, there were about 20 residences on the townsite, along with all the amenities like […]
The above screenshot was taken from this article over at Matador Network. The website regularly features travelogues, some international news, and various other travel-related posts.
