Hi Julia.

Me again … thought you would like this series of photos of Podolia School, which is located north-west of Arran, Saskatchewan.

This is where my mother Myroslawka (Marion) Nahnybida was born/raised and attended school.

Sorry the photo isn’t the best. It is only a photocopy that I have in my records. (004 and text on 005)

The second document (005) attached indicates who some of the students are.

This photo (004) is likely 1934-35 – I am basing this on approx. age of my Aunt Ethel Nahnybida (in the photo).

This photo (006) (and accompanying identification map 007) was taken at a fair held at the school.

(006) Likely taken around 1931-34, based on age John Nahnybida (No. 29 in the photo) would have been at the time.

This one (008) taken about 1943 – my mother, Marion, was in Grade 2 at the time.

First year my Mom (Marion Nahnybida) was in school, therefore, this (009) was likely taken 1938 (if she was 6 years old at the time).

(010) Taken c.1942.

These folks (including my Aunts Ethel and Gloria) used to chum around,

and school was often a meeting place.

This photo (011 and 012) taken c.1935, based on Ethel and Tony Nahnbyida’s poss. age at this time.

Pic. (013) poss. 1931.

Photo (014) c.1948 – my Mom, Marion, was 13 at the time.
