Scoop’s Gallery
Order of Canada recipient, the late Louis Harrington (“Scoop”) Lewry’s (April 16, 1919—February 24, 1992) whole life resolved around three things: numismatics, the City of Moose Jaw (Saskatchewan), and local politics. He an avid photo-journalist earning him the name “Scoop”, who was involved in many community initiatives. Scoop filled the pages of local newspapers with his reporting.

Having “rounded them up” and “roped them in”, we share 9 of 14 of these marvelous images with you, which were provided by John Regitko who took ownership of the photos after Lewry’s passing in 1992. Unfortunately, the remainder were damaged and were never sent to John as a result. Click for more…
