We had fun learning about turtles and weaving our own. Thank you!

I know you did a great job.

In the early days of Boissevain we seem to have had quite the range of sports. Cricket was played til the days of the First World War. Lacrosse was big in the 1880s and there is supposed to be a 1911 postcard where the local team was proclaimed Senior Amateur Lacrosse Champions of the World...
There were three tennis courts on the north end of Cook St on the east side. At one point tennis thrived and players competed in regional tournaments. (The number of players declined around the Second World War and the courts were sold off into housing lots.)

Farm accidents are a terrible thing. Alex Klassen is a strong boy but will have a tough recovery road. For $5 you can contribute to a great cause....and maybe even win a colt!
Tickets are available at Glovers, Steads and the Library. 
Questions? Please see Meghans contact information on the poster.

It feels like a bit of a treasure hunt as we try to connect the dots as to which businesses were located where in the early days of Boissevain.  In many cases we go looking in the newspaper to see if there might be advertisements or a story that might provide a clue. 
If you look just to the left of the horses in this picture you will see a sign for E Maguire...and apparently he was a builder/contractor!

The tax rolls for 1907 place his storefront on the current site of the Prairie Partners Inc. & Sawmill Tea & Coffee Co. (office) at the corner of South Railway and Cherry Streets.

At one point in time travel by rail was the way to travel in Canada. Now public trains are few and far between, and for most a novelty more than a mode of transport. 
In this photo the local railway station was in the process of being demolished.

At this point I don't know. I'm assuming that was the house in the left hand corner of this picture?

Can we tell where the station masters house was moved to ?
