Historical pics found at yard sale
Sioux Lookout resident Carol-Ann Madsen purchased a dusty old photo album at a yard sale in Sioux Lookout a few years ago. It turned out the album belonged to Gifford Swartman, a former World War II veteran and well-known local Indian Agent for the federal government. The album is full of black and white photos documenting his trips to northern communities in the early 1940-50s. The communities named are Webequie, Mishkegogamamng (Osnaburg), Cat Lake, Sandy Lake, Weenusk, Bearskin Lake and various unnamed places and faces.
