Looking Back

Inside the house of August and Annie Boulanger

Inside the house of August Boulanger and his wife Annie Elizabeth (Beth) née Spilsbury. The house was built in 1909 and the photo could well have been taken shortly after its completion. The modern address of the Boulanger residence is 26011 Lougheed Highway.
