Description

Fred Cormier identifies people, buildings, and locations in old photographs from Frenchtown, Montana, where he grew up in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He discusses the lumber, farming, and milling industries—specifically history of the Cormier and Glaude sawmill—as well as the changing environment of the Frenchtown and his family life growing up. Cormier talks about the death of his sister Sabrina in 1918, inheriting the Cormier family farm, and losing the farm in 1927. He also discusses moving around looking for work during the Great Depression.
