The photo above is courtesy of John Rochon. A note at first page of May-June 2019 issue of Photographic Canadiana reads:
OUR COVER: John Rochon came to our rescue with this delightful pioneer image of a couple at the doorway to their log cabin home. It has all the elements of a harsh life with the trusty rifles, axes and snowshoes to serve their needs. There is the little detail of a piece of cloth covering the doorway and a horseshoe over the doorway for good luck.

Below are some previous posts about the Photographical Historical Society of Canada (founded 1974) as well as posts about Bob Lansdale (Robert Lansdale Sr) and his son Robert Lansdale Jr.
Bob Lansdale is editor of Photo Canadiana. He is working on his next issue (the one that will follow Vol 45-1 May-June 2019), which will be his 100th issue since taking over as editor.
Bob Lansdale and Robert Lansdale are among the many energetic and dedicated heritage enthusiasts that I had the good fortune to meet during the 21 years I lived with my family in Long Branch.
