Collection Charlotte M. Campbell – Rottenstone Lake

Turning to page 3, and setting the time machine to Rottenstone Lake, Saskatchewan, in the year 1929.

I think we are getting somewhere with the caption.

And the faces!

But no still names for now, just numbers for now to help me.

All these people ought to be part of RCAF No.3 Photo Flight in Rottenstone Lake, Saskatchewan, in 1929.

My guess is that no.5 is Bill.

Ross Campbell told me Bill was probably a ground crew (mechanic) and not a pilot. Bill isn’t on this group picture of pilots either which is part of the photo album, unless you can spot him for us.

Where to start this journey into the past of Charlotte M. Campbell and her photo album?

Season 1928
Lake of the Woods, Ontario

I have never been to Lake of the Woods, Ontario, so I will start by looking for more information about it.

What better place than their Website.

Lake of the Woods and the surrounding areas comprise one of the natural wonders of North America. With
over 14,000 islands and more than 105,000 kilometers (65,000 miles) of shoreline – more shoreline than
Lake Superior, the waterways of the lake and the surrounding wilderness offer anglers & hunters and
endless variety of opportunities to experience the wonder of the region.

There are very few clues on these blown-up pictures.

Only two men and no floatplanes around.

Charlotte Campbell, or the person who took these pictures, was probably on a little vacation at Lake of the Woods which has now one of the coolest little museum in Canada…

Here is a map made in 1928 that I found.

I had hoped it would have helped me get around Lake of the Woods, Ontario.

There is a lesson in each scene,
A story in each bower and stream.

Ross Campbell is responsible for having saved this photo album. He does not know that much about the lady who mounted the album. There is just a name on the cover: Charlotte M. Campbell, and a street address… 844 Bannatyne, Ave, Winnipeg.

844-bannatyne-ave

Here are all the pages Ross Campbell, who is not related to Charlotte M. Campbell, has scanned a few years ago.

I have copied the captions for now. Clicking on each image will allow you to zoom in.

Who were these people posing for posterity in Rottenstone Lake?

I have no idea but I know I want to know more.

And who could this young dashing flyer be?

From Bill

Boy do I  love a mystery!

Stay tuned…

Next time, post 1126, and how I got those pictures and a whole lot more.

My last post…

I wrote my last post on Our Ancestors last December 12. I have been sort of distracted by My Forgotten Hobby, which is just another of my numerous blogs, and a few others more for that matter…, and a minor eye operation.

This is not my last post on Our Ancestors because someone just wrote me on Thursday, and sent me this picture…

I just could not resist writing about it.
