This Album includes people of all ages who lived, and sometimes worked, on the Bell Farm during the era that Major Bell lived here (1882-1896) and afterwards.

The Bell Farm was a corporate venture, officially known as the Qu'Appelle Valley Farming Company, and included a number of investors and employed many people, both for farm purposes and for construction and maintenance. Major Bell also employed a large number of First Nation people to help operate his farm. The images in this Album focus on the people who worked and lived on the Farm. Images of and information on the Investors can be found in Album 300. The following Images are presented in alphabetical order, after the general farming photos and sketches.
