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.
