Lethbridge, South Alberta’s Thriving City
By H. G. Long, Lethbridge, Alta.
‘Lethbridge had its beginnings in coal and cattle. Host city to the 55th annual convention of the Western Stock Growers’ Association Feb. 8th and 9th, Lethbridge in the 65 years of its existence has grown to be a city of some 23,000 serving a territory of some 20,000 square miles and more than 100,000 population. Today it depends largely upon agriculture for its new wealth production which runs in the surrounding area to some $125,000,000 annually, with agriculture in its various forms supplying about $100,000,000 of this.’
