Ever wondered about the black and white photo's in the bathrooms? Those were taken by my great uncle, Ira Stockebrand. He was a history professor and coach in Kansas in the 30's and 40's but his love was the outdoors. He spent his summers fishing and photograhing Manitoba and Saskatchewan. His collection was so extensive that the Canadian government hired him to help map some of the more remote areas.
My family has thousands of his photographs. From "Frenchie" the French Canadian in the bottom photo who was killed by a bear (yes, that's his self-built cabin and canoe) to the 1936 Berlin Olympics where he sat behind Hitler. You can see Uncle Ira in the boat in front of that classic seaplane and again beside the river, but that's not him on the dock.
Yes indeed, everything does have a story. What's yours?
