Another Week

Hi Everyone!

James and I made another trip to the Provincial Archives this Wednesday. We spent most of the time sorting through photos. We actually had quite a few selected but due to the expensive publication prices attached to reproducing those images we were only able to order four. We found some interesting photos of downtown Camrose and the Camrose Lutheran College (Augustana) though!

We are still sifting through the newspaper issues and they continue to be just as entertaining as they were in the beginning of this process. Apparently in the spring of 1918 an oversized egg resulted in the praising of a “patriotic hen” adding to the calls for more poultry and bacon to be produced for the front lines.

Hope all is well with your research!
