Photo restoration - abt. 1907 & 1909 Perdue, Saskatchewan, Canada
« on: Monday 18 December 17 17:55 GMT (UK) »
I am hopeful that someone can help with photo restoration of these two photos.  All my life I heard about the sod house my mother lived in while growing up on the Sask. prairie.  She was one of five girls born to my grandparents and her oldest sister Donna who was born in 1905, is in both of these photos.

1st photo - about 1907, as they homesteaded in 1906 in Perdue, Sask.  It has my grandmother - Ethel Sabina Baker (nee Scott) sitting in the wagon seat, my grandfather - John Alexander Baker is standing by the horse(s), my great-grandfather Richard Scott is standing by the wagon wheel and holding my aunt Donna Baker's hand.  In the wagon is sod for the sod house that you can see behind the wagon as half constructed.

2nd photo - about 1909, after the sod house is built in Perdue, Sask.  It has my great-grandmother - Maria Louisa Scott (nee Hayter) standing with dog Jeff, and my aunt Donna heading towards the sod house.

I realize these pictures are in very bad condition, but if they could be made a bit clearer it would be a huge help.  Thank you.  Marianne

If a task is once begun never leave it till it's done. Be the labor great or small, do it well or not at all.
