Turn the clock back to 1961 and beyond. Roam those old dirt roads once more and visit friendly neighbours you knew so well. From its beginnings before 1930 to its dismantlement in 1961, making way for the Squaw Rapids Hydro-electric Dam, to the day in 1962 when the river rose and water erased footprints forever, there's a lot to remember and to comment on.

Mossy Vale School Students, 1957-58

A lunch hour photo on a warm-enough day after Christmas. A section of the portable concert stage has been removed from the school and lies temporarily propped against the wall and awaiting storage while a couple of wooden benches, also for the concert, lie upside down in the snow on the right. From left: Kenny Brown, Jim Adamson, Brian Smith (a.k.a. Boots's Friend, kneeling), Patsy Brown (standing), Verna Reimer (in doorway), Lloyd Wall (sitting in front), John Smith, Warren Adamson. Missing from photo: Harvey Reimer, who was away with his parents who were cooking at a Cumberland House camp, and Rita and Bruce Adamson who lived close to the school and therefore went home for their lunch.
