Hi there - Gary's sister, Deborah here. I just found this link on Gary's facebook and came by to investigate. It is amazing to think my Grandmother may have come here as a young girl. Wish I could have got to know her better; I was too young to appreciate and want to understand where she came from before she died. Thanks for sharing this absolutely gorgeous photo's!

Thanks Gary and hope you enjoy it. I bet your grandmother Gertude missed it when she move to Canada but Canada got more beautiful scenic view than England and Wales.

Wow...I can't believe I am actually seeing what my grandmother Gertude Williams/Champagne probably visted many times in her life. She was from Wales and immigrated to Canada as a young girl. Great pics...thank you.
