G-CASL

Nice shot of a floatplane!

G-CASL was a Fokker Super Universal.

Click here.

Charlotte pasted it in the album with these other photos.

The year is 1927 if it’s true of course.

It was on this page.

I am not right now able to identify the other aircraft. I think the one at the top is a Vickers Vedette. At the bottom it’s a floatplane.

I know it’s  not an Avro 552A.

So I might need some help.

Maybe I can find something here.

Mystery solved!


Now could this picture had been taken in 1929 at Rottenstone Lake, Saskatchewan?

With this one?

Accidents

This is how I found Charlotte M. Campbell last night

Just by accident…

October 16, 1933

The Winnipeg Tribune

James Campbell, 844 Bannatyne ave., sustained bruises and abrasions about the head and body when he was struck by a car while crossing Main st. between Market and James. He was taken to the General hospital. Condition good.

Alex. Campbell, 844 Bannatyne ave., was cut over the right eye when the car in which he was a passenger went into the curb at Coburn st. and Warsaw ave., early Sunday morning. Glaring headlights of a car coming in the opposite direction were blamed, for the mishap.

Then I found two obituaries in 1935…

James Campbell, 39, returned soldier, of 844 Bannatyne avenue, died Sunday in General hospital after a short illness.  The funeral will be held at 1.30 p.m. Wednesday from Mordue Bros.’ funeral home to Elmwood cemetery.  Besides his mother, with whom he lived, Mr. Campbell is survived by a brother, Alex, and a sister, Kathleen, also at home.  Four other sisters also survive:  Mrs. D.R. Gilchrist, Camp Borden, Ont.; Mrs. James Moorcroft, Vancouver, B.C., and Mrs. R. Toole and Mrs. J. Jones, both of Winnipeg.

CAMPBELL – On Dec. 8, 1935, at the Winnipeg General hospital, James Campbell, of 844 Bannatyne Ave., in his 40th year. Funeral service Wednesday, 1.30 p.m., in Mordue Bros. Funeral Home, 183 Donald St. Interment in family plot Elmwood cemetery. (Winnipeg Free Press, December 10, 1935, page 20)

From there I began searching for that family in Canadian censuses. Stay tuned because I won’t keep you on the edge of your seat.
