Five girls, one boy… the Eastland family with father Fred and mother Constance were a model family in Niagara Falls during the first half of the 20th Century. Fred, my grandfather, owned a business and was very successful in this small town. He was also generous and during the depression did much good for others in a very quiet manner.
He was a good Salvationist and with my grandmother, affectionally referred to by me as Nanny, had a great impact on the faith of others.
Eileen, Florence, Margaret (Mom), Freda and Joyce are pictured above with Nanny.
Jim is just a bit older than I and will soon turn 65! How could that be?!
Tomorrow we hope to have lunch with Mom and Freda – pictured below.
For the record here’s the whole gang! These are the wonderful relatives I spent time with at the cottage every summer for years.
