Unfortunately not all of the photographs in our collection are identified. In this instance we have a small black photo album that was donated and we know nothing about it. The photos are not labelled. From the clothes and the military uniforms on some of the men we would estimate the dates of the photos between 1910 and 1920. The photos are not of the best quality, but nonetheless they do give us a good insight into how the people lived back then.

If anyone recognizes any thing familiar in these photographs we would appreciate hearing from you.

  1. Hello there,

    This page, and the one titled “forgotten people from our past” have pictures that are not visible. Specifically, I cannot vie any pictures on either page. Thank you so much for setting this historical site up. I am so thankful and would like to learn more.

    Thank you so much, Roger Hudson

    • Thanks for bringing this to our attention, it used to work, but for some reason the photos do not display now. It may take a few days but we will get it working again. Glad you are enjoying the website if you have any history of the area to add we would appreciate hearing from you. John

    • Just noticed you said “This Page” which page were you referring to. I only checked the Forgotten People to see that it was not working.
      John
