A series of very old photographs taken by my great-grandfather and grandfather who founded Souvenir Photo Studio in the early 1900’s, in Radville, Saskatchewan.

Emile Jalbert married Therese Bourassa shortly after this photo was taken. Emile served overseas and was rescued at Dunkirk. He never spoke much about his horrific war experiences. I assume the photo is around 1945.

    Thanks Liz. My great-grandfather and grandfather obviously didn’t have the benefit of all the electronic features we have today. Some of the work they have done is utterly amazing. I even have negatives on glass!
