A note regarding photo at this post

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.
