Ukrainian Canadian pioneer photos

If you'd like a glimpse into life on the Canadian prairies for Ukrainian settlers check out this website (here.)

It's a collection of photos taken in the Wroxton and Calder areas in Saskatchewan in the 1920s. (The area is not far from where I grew up, and I recall driving by those towns countless times on the way to and from Yorkton.)

The website is absolutely gorgeous and the photos are accompanied by a bit of colourful commentary ... either some info about the people in the photo or, where there was none, some interesting speculation.

It's called Steve Huziak: Prairie Faces and it can be found here. Well worth a visit!
