The Civic Museum of Regina and the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame are partnering to celebrate Women's History Month this October through a variety of exciting initiatives that will engage the community with Saskatchewan Women in Sports.
We hope to turn the entire city into a museum for the month of October by creating pop-up displays in different locations around town. Our professional curatorial staff will work with businesses and community groups to curate existing spaces in a way that highlights Saskatchewan's incredible sportswomen and showcases different organizations' own connection to the sports community. Spaces can be non-traditional, but should be open to the public for some portion of the day. Visitors will be able to find and visit these museum sites through a special guide provided by the Civic Museum of Regina and Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame.
If you are interested in being a part of this program please email Gillian Barker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The wall telephone was used in most homes after 1911. The sizes, shapes, colours and materials changed over the years and the demand grew for more than one phone per household.
An early Government of Saskatchewan model 1900, this telephone was acquired by the museum in 1983.
The first telephone company in Regina was Bell Canada Company. By the Fall of 1882, the town boasted 20 telephones in use on 10 private lines.
