My great grand parents homesteaded in Sask. He and a few others bought a train load of farming equipment and before going into Canada they ran them up and down the dirt roads to give them a used look as the import tax was much less for used equipment. I looked on Google Earth and found the street shown. The taller building on the left is still there as is the church on the right.

Thanks Tom. I gotta learn how to copy a picture from Google Earth. If you back up a bit the 6 story building on the left (on the post card pic)is visible.

Gary-
Nice picture. Is that one that someone from your family took? I'm wondering if that Model T with electrified headlights is the one that you shared as the "tractor."

Thanks for sharing again.

First pic is west of Main Street. Second one is east of Main Street - both looking eastward.

Kieth, Thanks. It's a post card evidently purchased when family was in Sask. Different Ts, different branches of the family.
