In regards to photo A1423 (Historical Lens, November 14th Pioneer), I have a little information for you. Mr. Wilfred Harry Tomkins, also known as Tommy Tompkins is my grandfather.He was born July 7th, 1884 and died on July 9th, 1972 in Calgary.He had taken a position in Invermere sometime before 1920 as Secretary of the Irrigated Fruit Lands Co. Ltd in Invermere.
As far as we know, he resided in Invermere until the late 1920s. Depending on the exact year of the picture, the little girl standing beside him is either my mother, Margaret Elizabeth Tomkins (born 1912), or her sister Nora Henrietta Tomkins (born 1914).
