Photo Identification – January 2016 – Christian Island

Part of the Huronia Museum collection includes photographs from the Midland Free Press. Often the photographers for the newspaper would take multiple shots and only one or two would make it into the newspaper. As a result some of the photos we have in our collection do not contain identification of the subjects within.

We are looking for your help in identifying those people and events in the following photos. They date back to the 1960’s (around 1962). If you can help us please let us know, here on this post, or you can email info@huroniamuseum.com or call us at 705-526-2844. Thank you!
