Roche Percee- David Tasker Pictures

Roche Percee, Estevan, Saskatchewan, Canada

These were all taken early 1930's, part of his Mom's Collection, on a visit to Canada early 1930's, contributed by David Tasker in England.

I apologize to David as he sent these early 2017, and I finally cleaned my emails from my old computer, and found these sitting there.

Battersby family are related to the McKersie and Knight familes in the area.
