    Did she work in a mfg. facility?
  4. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Yes ! I would pick her up sometimes and the huge factory had a terrible odor and it was very very hot in there . The building is still standing that I know of . I have just not been to that side of town in awhile . It was there a few years ago . Closed .

    She passed away in the 70's . I think lung illness from fumes myself and no open windows .

    I have a collection of these with my partriotic cards and show farming on the prairies. One card shows a woman by the side of the road, as a farmer stops, but closer inspection shows it is a man !! Love those cards. The ones in Canada show a lot of symbols like the maple leaf and the beaver. Phil.

    That's terrible Mani, she was way to young, lung illness's are so debilitating. Where was the facility & what did they build there?
