People Coming and Going- Going and Coming Photos


Our folks moved west, some moved back then went back again. It was a back and forth when the crops failed or they worked on the railway. Some of the stories are linked below. Here are some amazing photos I found this morning.

Photos from Canadian Photographic History Facebook page and they are also for sale on the Delcampe Auction site.
