I received these aerial photos from Dolories Tremblay Weston who lived in Central Pat until 1951.

    Oh my gosh.
    Thank you So Much for posting these pictures, Patti. They have stirred up a big longing for connection to my homeland, I will look at these many, many times and conjure up the memories– good and tragic– of my childhood. I am forever heartbroken that I didn’t have more time in Central Patricia, more time to finish my life there.

      I feel that we were “gifted” by that life. I lived in 15 more mining towns after The Pat and they were all much the same and just wonderful in retrospect. I haven’t continued that life though. I have lived in the same little town, same house for the past 42 years. (yes! I’m pretty old now!) …just 45 minutes from Montreal. I like the city too, but not to come home to. I think my strength, courage and resilience, and my confidence all came as a result of living in those towns in the northland.
      Bless you!

    My thanks to my sister Narda for sending these on to me. I remember most of what’s in the photos. I lived there from the age of 7 to 21. My father moved I and my brothers in the summer of 1955 from Crowshore Patricia to Central Patricia. He was hired to help dismantle the mine property.

    Thanks Patti, the pictures are available at the Pickle Lake municipality office at a small cost with of course good black and white resolution. terry hryniuk
