Historical information

Churchill Island Heritage Farm has a large photographic collection dating from the nineteenth century. This series showcases photographs taken in the 1930s and 1940s and shows people who lived and worked on the Island during the Jenkins period. This photograph shows Ted Jenkins being pulled by the pony - the typical way he travelled around Churchill Island in lieu of a cumbersome and delicate wheelchair - and Gid Ashley seated on the wheel.
