Star Journal reader, Robin Baribeau, recently contacted this newspaper to ask for our assistance with a mystery he is trying to solve.
“Years ago I had an antique store, and one day an old fella brought in some glass negatives from the Gravenhurst Hospital [Ontario],” writes Baribeau. “Apparently some guy died and these negatives were all that he had, and they were supposed to have been destroyed. I believe they were taken about 1890, and I would love to put names to these people and find where this homestead was.”
Baribeau says the photo negative of the homestead has “North Thompson” written on it.
If you recognize any of these old photos, or possibly the area of the homestead in the North Thompson, please contact this newspaper.
