Taken in the Souris Valley area, near Radville, Saskatchewan, Canada by my maternal grandfather.
This is a very old photo of my Grandmother in the background, and my great-grandmother in the foreground, spending the evening mending, knitting and doing chores, probably in the 1920’s. Lovingly restored by yours truly.
The photo on the upper wall is of a dedicated relative who was an influential French-Canadian politician and activist, Henri Bourassa.
HENRI BOURASSA, politician, journalist, founder of Le Devoir newspaper, editor-in-chief, publisher, and author; b. 1 Sept. 1868 in Montreal, d. 31 Aug. 1952 in Montreal.
He was opposed, among other things, to the plebiscite of 27 April 1942, which was designed to release the King government from its promise not to impose conscription.
Bourassa was a proud supporter of the spirit and letter of the Canadian constitution, a Canadian nationalist devoted to Canada..
