A Second World War-era photo illustrates Canada’s determination to defeat Nazis. 
Submitted by Anita Hochstein of Glastonbury, Connecticut. 
This photo shows my mom, Helen Schrempp Hochstein, and her brother Wilfred Schrempp, both of Twin Butte, Alta., in Ottawa in 1943. Born in 1913 and 1916, respectively, Wilf and Helen were the third and fourth children of Bertha Lattman and Fred Schrempp. Bertha and Fred homesteaded at Twin Butte after coming from Hartington, Neb., around 1905 with a group of other ranchers, mostly of German descent.

Both Helen and Wilf graduated from the Normal School in Calgary and taught locally until the Second World War. Mom and her friend Mary McIntyre Schmidt took the train to Ottawa after passing an employment test for work with the Canadian government. Mom worked for the Canadian Army, and Uncle Wilf visited her there while serving in the Army. Wilf also served in the Pacific theatre and brought home a real grass skirt from Tahiti.

After the war, Wilf ranched and taught in the Twin Butte area until he died in 1982. Mom went back to Twin Butte in 1944 to marry Dr. Francis A. Hochstein, who was also the son of homesteaders from Nebraska. Dad studied at the University of Chicago and at MIT in Massachusetts before a long career with Pfizer.

Mom passed away in 2002, but she always spoke fondly of Ottawa and of how she passed up a chance to be photographed by Yousuf Karsh.

An ivory carving of the HBC's S.S. Baychimo made by the Chukchi, a northern indigenous group in Russia.
Image from @manitobamuseum 
In 1931, the SS Baychimo got caught in the ice off Barrow, Alaska, where it was unloaded and abandoned. It did not sink, however, and eventually became known as the “ghost ship of the Arctic” — with sightings of the Baychimo taking place every few years in various parts of the North.

It’s believed that the first Sikhs to emigrate to Canada were a group of soldiers travelling through the country en route to Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in England in 1897. Admiring British Columbia’s lush landscape, they chose to stay.

Since then, the Sikh community in Canada has grown to more than 468,000, with more than one third of the population living in British Columbia. A new project in that province is showcasing the stories of Sikh women, whose accomplishments have traditionally been ignored or marginalized by historians.

The Kaur Project, created by Jessie Kaur Lehail and Saji Kaur Sahota, is an online resource filled with stories and photos of women in B.C. with the traditional Sikh name Kaur.

Kaur — meaning prince — is typically adopted by Sikh women as a middle name or surname. It is meant to symbolize gender equality in that religion (men typically adopt the middle name or surname Singh, which means lion). The naming practice began in 1699 as a way of liberating Sikhs from the strict caste system of ancient India. Gender equality is a tenet of the Sikh religion.

Lehail said the Kaur Project gives a voice to Sikh women, whose stories have historically been either untold, or diminished.

We remember Yoichi Kamakura, a Japanese immigrant from B.C., who was killed in action the day after the Battle of Hill 70 ended. Yoichi had received the Military Medal for his skills as a machine gunner.

Les modèles de canots, comme celui-ci que l’on peut voir au Musée du Manitoba, étaient des jouets et des objets d’artisanat fort populaires comme monnaie d’échange avec les Européens. Un homme anishinabe, Ahmoo (Bee), a fabriqué ce modèle de 102 cm par 18 cm au début des années 1920. Il reflète le style traditionnel ojibway et est une réplique du canot d’écorce autochtone, qui devient rapidement le mode de transport privilégié des explorateurs et des commerçants de fourrures dans les régions subarctiques et boisées du Canada.

Relativement léger et bien adapté au réseau de rivières local, ces canots sont faciles à réparer avec des matières naturelles, comme de l’écorce pour boucher les trous, des racines d’épinette pour réparer les coutures et de la gomme d’épinette noircie pour imperméabiliser les coutures. Les canots utilisés par les voyageurs étaient de tailles et de modèles différents. Par exemple, le canot du maître, généralement utilisé entre Lachine au Québec et Grand Portage à la tête du lac Supérieur, mesurait en moyenne 2 m par 12 m et pouvait transporter 3,5 tonnes de marchandises. Le plus petit canot du nord, utilisé dans les réseaux de rivières intérieures et dans l’ouest, mesurait environ 1 m par 7 m et pouvait transporter 1,36 tonne de marchandises.

Bale seals were crimped to fur bundles that had been sorted and prepared for exhibition to potential buyers. The earliest seals were made from lead, but these twentieth-century seals were made from processed sheet iron that had been protected from corrosion with some kind of lacquered finish.

The HBC Collection at the Manitoba Museum has a few late-nineteenth- and early twentieth century entury varieties but no examples of earlier lead seals.

How did the seals work? Furs were wrapped in forty-kilogram burlap bundles, and a rope or cord was tied around the exterior. The burlap was stencilled with important information regarding the point of origin and ownership, and the seals were likely crimped around the cord.

Bale seals are one of the most commonly forged Hudson’s Bay Company artifacts on the market, with many crude examples of flat metal pieces with conjoined HBC and beaver iconography mistakenly listed as bale seals.

Above text was written by Amelia Fay, curator of the HBC Collection at the Manitoba Museum.

Who wore it better? It's never easy when you show up wearing the same outfit as someone, but for The Beaver magazine we think over 50 years between sharing the same cover art might be enough time. See The Battle of the Bay by Norman Wilkinson featured in December 1936 and August/September 1988.
