Rendering Plant

I listened to Brian Austin on “Under the Big Sky” and noted that he did forget to mention the rendering plant at the old Milk River Bridge site. This was in operation during the early days of my marriage. This building was used to render the...

 

Does Anyone Remember This?

Christmas Gift Giving

How many of you mothers received a bottle of Evening in Paris Cologne, in that lovely blue bottle, for a Christmas gift or a fancy lace handkerchief for Christmas? Many men receive hankies for gifts also. If hubby or Daddy was an outside person his...

 

Rail Service

Remembering rail services from the past. Remember some of the elementary classes in the Glasgow school used to get to take a train trip to Malta, which for many students would be their first train trip in their lives. I do not remember how they...

Fair Memories
