....Attached is a photo of the Thompson's Lake School near Moose Jaw. I do not know the year or any of the people on this picture which surfaced in the collection of one of my deceased ancestors. Perhaps you can use it for your One Room School Project.
....My great grandfather, Nils Selander, homesteaded near Moose Jaw in the early 1900s, along with his sons Peter, Andrew and John Selander. Peter's log home was about a mile from the Thomson's Lake school. My grandfather was John Selander. I am working on a family history of all their descendants.
