History / Biographical
Alfred Ernest Cross, circa 1890 -1951, emigrated from England to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and settled in Lethbridge in 1920. By 1924 he had opened A.E. Cross Studio, a photography business which offered portraits and commericl photography, photo finishing and picture framing. The studio was located at 906 3rd Avenue South and moved to 614 3rd Avenue in 1927, and 710 3rd Avenue South in 1952. A. E. retired circa 1948 and his son, Reginald A. became manager. The company was renamed A. E. Cross Photography Limited circa 1967. By 1973 A.E. Cross Studios was apparently re-established at the same location with Reginald as manager. Ed Keeling became manager circa 1976 (source Glenbow Archives: A Guide To The Holdings Volume 1, 1992). Ed Keeling was born in 1942 in Bassano, Alberta, and attended school in Coaldale, near Lethbridge. He started working at the A.E. Cross Studio in 1962 at the age of 20 as a support staff. That was the year when the studio started color processing. In 1972 he became the manager of the studio in partnership, and in 1974 the sole owner of the business. Over the years, Ed Keeling was a member of Photographers' Assn of Canada. For 11 years he was the President of the Alberta branch; 3 years he was the President of the national organization.
Custodial History
The majority of the early work of the Studio - 1865 images and 0.5 cm of textual records - was donated to Glenbow Archives by Reginald Cross in 1972. The remaining portion of the collection (700 images) was collected by the Galt Archives. The 1972-1999 collection had been accummulated and stored in carton boxes in the basement of the studio. The boxes stayed in the basement untill August, 2011, when they were donated to the Galt Museum and Archives by the new owner Peter Etches.
Scope and Content
The fonds consist of a mixture of studio portrait work, photographs of local businesses and other images. The 1972-1999 collection consists of 300,000 negatives and prints organized by individual projects in chronological order. It includes all the photographic work done by the studio in this period. The photographs are largely portraits and weddings and occasional commercial projects.

History / Biographical
Andrew Charles (Andy) Anderson was born in 1909 in Shabbona, Illinois, the eldest of six children of Charles Eric and Bertha Anderson (nee Ostervig). The Anderson family moved to Champion, Alberta in 1912. Andy Anderson worked on the family farm until 1930, a year after his father’s death. He then decided to leave the farm and enter the University of Alberta. In 1934 Mr. Anderson graduated from the University of Alberta with a PHM.C. (Pharmaceutical Chemist) degree. He apprenticed with J.D. Henderson in Champion, and then moved to Lethbridge where he was employed by the R.J. Kitson Pharmacy for 14 years. In 1948 Mr. Anderson established Anderson’s Medical Dental Pharamcy. The pharmacy still operates under the ownership of Mr. Anderson’s son Murray. Andy Anderson married his wife Rheta in 1938 in Champion. As well as their son Murray, the Andersons had a daughter Marilyn (married Lew Hutchison). Andy Anderson entered public life in 1950 when he was elected to the Lethbridge Public School Board (LPSB). He served on the LPSB for 14 years and was its chairman in 1954, 1958 and 1962. In 1964, Andy Anderson was elected to Lethbridge City Council and served as an alderman until 1968. In March 1968 Mr. Anderson became the Mayor of Lethbridge when he chosen for the position by the other members of City Council following Mayor Frank Sherring’s resignation on 5 March 1968. Andy Anderson became the longest serving mayor in Lethbridge history, retiring from office in 1986. He won four municipal elections, and was acclaimed Mayor twice as well. As well as his political career and pharmacy business, Mr. Anderson was involved with a wide range of community organizations as well. Among them are the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce, St. Michael’s Hospital Advisory Board, University of Lethbridge Senate and Board of Governors, Lethbridge Recreation Commission, the Community Chest, Southminster United Church, Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps, Canadian Western Natural Gas, Masonic Lodge No. 39, the Kinsmen Club, the Rotary Club, Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF), Chinook Club and the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (BPOE).
