Memory Mondays – Water-based Activities
This month’s #MemoryMondays post is featuring photos of water-based activities! These photos all come from the WDM’s Barton Collection of photos, which follows multiple generations of one family from a farm near Floral, just outside of Saskatoon.
It seems that the Barton family frequently visited Beaver Creek in the summer to swim, picnic, fish, and have fun. All five of this month’s photos were taken at or near Beaver Creek between 1921 and 1956.
