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.

The Hamilton "V" for Victory

It was war time, and around the time of Miss Leitz's school play. The Hamiltons, whose livelihood depended on their farm and Ellis's trapline, found their own meaningful way to show support for the effort that was taking place overseas. Some of Ellis's winter trappings were arranged in this substantial "Victory V". In the picture are Ellis, Andrew, and Clara.
