UKRAINIAN HERITAGE. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS. SHE WAS UNABLE TO IDENTIFY THE NEEDLEWORKER OR ANY OTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THIS PICTURE. *UPDATE* IN 2015 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS, INCLUDING THREE DONATED BY THE UKRAINIAN ASSOCIATION OF LETHBRIDGE. THOUGH THE ASSOCIATION HAS DISBANDED, SHE WAS ABLE TO DETERMINE THAT IT IS LIKELY THAT THIS OBJECT AND 81 OTHERS DONATED BY THE ASSOCIATION IN 1973 WERE ORIGINALLY PART OF THE GALT MUSEUM'S 'UKRAINIAN ROOM' EXHIBIT. ACCORDING TO LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES FROM 1969 AND 1976, AND PHOTOGRAPHS IN THE GALT ARCHIVES (199110764419, 1991107612370, 199110764421, AND 199110764422) THE UKRAINIAN ROOM WAS INSTALLED IN 1966, WHEN THE MUSEUM WAS MOVED FROM THE BOWMAN CENTRE TO THE GALT HOSPITAL BUILDING. THE ROOM WAS FURNISHED WITH OBJECTS DONATED BY THE UKRAINIAN ASSOCIATION, AND THE GROUP HELD ANNUAL TEAS THERE. THOUGH THE CATALOGUE NUMBERS OF THE UKRAINIAN ASSOCIATION DONATION REFLECT A 1973 DONATION DATE, THE INITIAL ACQUISITION YEAR LISTED IN HARDCOPY FILES IS 1966, WHICH ALIGNS WITH THE OPENING DATE OF THE UKRAINIAN ROOM. IN ADDITION, ARCHIVAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE ROOM DEPICT OBJECTS THAT ARE NOW HELD IN COLLECTIONS (P19738277001-GA, P19738277002-GA, AND P19738277003-GA CAN BE CLEARLY IDENTIFIED, WITH OTHER OBJECTS IDENTIFIED SPECULATIVELY). IN 1984 THE MUSEUM DISMANTLED ALL ITS DISPLAYS IN PREPARATION FOR THE BUILDING'S RENOVATION AND EXPANSION, AND ACCORDING TO BRAD BROWN, GALT EXHIBIT DESIGNER, WHEN THE FACILITY REOPENED TO THE PUBLIC IN 1985 ALL THE EXHIBITS HAD BEEN REWORKED, AND THE UKRAINIAN ROOM NO LONGER EXISTED.

SEE P19990035001-GA FOR DONOR HISTORY. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS. WHILE SHE WAS UNABLE TO FIND ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THE ORIGINAL OWNER OF THIS PRINT (PRESUMABLY AN INDIVIDUAL WITH TIES TO THE PIONEER PEMMICAN CLUB), SHE DID LEARN THE ORIGINS OF THE VERSES REPRODUCED ALONGSIDE THE IMAGE OF THE UNION JACK FLAG. THE LINES ARE EXCERPTED FROM A POEM WRITTEN BY ALFRED LORD TENNYSON FOR THE OPENING OF THE 1886 COLONIAL AND INDIAN EXHIBITION, HELD IN LONDON. THE EXHIBITION FOLLOWED THE 'WORLD'S FAIR' FORMAT, WHICH WAS HIGHLY POPULAR AT THE TIME, AND FEATURED DISPLAYS FROM NATIONS COLONIZED UNDER THE BRITISH EMPIRE. THE PRINCE OF WALES COMMISSIONED TENNYSON TO WRITE THE WELCOMING POEM TO BE READ AT THE OPENING CEREMONY OF THE EXHIBITION BY QUEEN VICTORIA. THE POEM PRAISES THE STRENGTH OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE AND INVOKES THE IMAGE OF THE BRITISH FLAG. NO INFORMATION ABOUT THE PRINTER, BERTRAND GALLOWAY IN VANCOUVER, OR A DEFINITIVE DATE OF THE PRINT WAS FOUND. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR HARDCOPY OF RELEVANT EXCERPTS FROM 'THE COMPLETE WORKS OF ALFRED LORD TENNYSON' (1961).
