Ric Hall’s Photo Corner

For this week, Ric has selected the photographic theme of “Old Force post cards.”  This theme is a continuation from the past two weeks.

 

 

 

 

The achievements and challenges of these early Force members were stories of personal sacrifices in providing the best possible services to the west.   These contributions were recognized in local newspapers, fiction and non-fiction books.  As such, Force members were a popular image on post cards in the past and in current times.

If you have old Force photographs that you would like to see included in one of Ric’s forthcoming webpages, please email him at rshall69@shaw.ca.  He will scan the images and return the original to you.
