My Great-Grandparents, like many people in their day, collected postcards that were sent to them. This collection has been passed down and I am lucky enough to be working with it. This blog outlines the history of two young Scots who moved to Canada and lived through one of the most dramatic decades in modern history - 1910-1920. Tales of romance, cross-Atlantic travel, a gold rush, war and death are all found here.

William was Jack's younger brother. He emigrated with Jack in 1910 and went off to war in 1914. He survived the war but became an alcoholic (from the family stories I have heard). As my mother was growing up, she remembers stories of Uncle Bill and his sometimes rather dangerous antics.
