Title

Black Children Outside Home Amber Valley Alberta 1911

Description

Many Black families that came to Alberta and Saskatchewan in the early 1900s took up farming. Some were able to take over abandoned, partially established land claims. Others had to start from scratch. Nevertheless within a decade, the average farm in Amber Valley consisted of thirty-eight acres of land, as well as horses, cattle, and homes for the families. Farmers also undertook jobs that paid in cash, such as lumbering and carting to enable them to purchase goods that they could not produce themselves.
