Gull Lake memories : a history of the town of Gull Lake, Saskatchewan

Just LOOK what Larry found!  After all these years, we finally have a photo of grandma Lizzy's oldest brother, Joe Sand.  It says he died in 1967, so the photo is older than that, but isn't it COOL?

Wow....just WOW.
Oh, I almost forgot--here's the link to the Gull Lake book..  It was published in 1989.
