Wordless Wednesday: Minna and Meta Brownfield

Minna and Meta Brownfield, Big River, Saskatchewan, Canada

My great aunt, sister to Nicholas Dozenberg and daughter
The Brownfields: mother and daughter: Minna and Meta

Wilhelmine (Minna) Braunfeld (anglonized Brownfield) nee Dosenberg
born: 1880, Russia, Latvia died: 1953 Big River, Sasketchwan, Canada
Meta Brownfield
born: 1914 Big River, Sasketchwan, Canada died: 1997, California

One of my all-time favorite pics. The Brownfields where pioneer settlers of the Big River area in Sasketchwan Canada (approximately 90 miles north of Prince Albert.) Fir trapping, fishing, and lumber milling where the mainstays of industry in this area. Judging from Meta’s age this photo dates around 1930.
