Description : Sepia toned postcard of the Town of Peace River. In this photograph the post office is still the wooden building. It was in 1935 that it was announced that preparations were being made to build a new brick post office. Also visible in the photograph is the Fitzgibbon Livery Transfer, which started after Mr. Fitzgibbon moved to Peace River in 1915. The barn was damaged in 1935, placing the photograph between 1915 and 1935.
Commentaires : This Livery Transfer barn was owned by Mike Fitzgibbon. There was a small barn door that Mike drew and painted himself that is now in the Peace River Museum's collection. The barn was damaged in the 1935 flood of Pat's Creek. Later Dave Halkett built in that location. Mr. Fitzgibbon moved to Peace River on May 28, 1915; "while in Peace River, [he] handled property for Revillon Freres, and also was a Government Land Guide, auctioneer, farmer and horse trader". He later moved to Sexsmith, Alberta where he spend the rest of his life (Peace River Remembers, p. 217). This donation of postcards and photographs was donated by Ernie Skip, who acquired them from a Mrs. MacRae, thought to be Pearl MacRae. Pearl Hazzard married Wilson MacRae and they had an adopted daughter, Greta MacRae, now Greta Picard (2010). Wilson was the post master in Peace River. It is thought to be Pearl MacRae because she lived only a few doors down from Mr. Skip, one of the postcards has the name Pearl on it, and the dates of the photographs coincide with the times that Wilson and Pearl would have been in Peace River.
