This is the shanty that my Great Grandfather built for his family when they moved from Ontario in 1883.
He had come west to Manitoba in 1882 found a suitable parcel of land broke the sod, built the shanty & went back east for the winter.
They had three children when they moved here & added three more in the years to follow.
They moved on to another farm sometime before 1891, hopefully to something bigger & better.
This photo was taken in 1915, 32 years after it was built.
The man in the photo was a neighbor who lived in a bid house across the road.
