 We moved to La Loche when I was a year and a half old (February 1946) and it was a wonderful clean, quiet, place to grow up. No roads (only cat trains over the ice in the winter) and monthly mail plane visits year round. We got some supplies from the Hudson's Bay post but most were brought in annually by cat train in the winter. Fish were plentiful and at age seven I caught a 36 inch jack fish at Little Lake, pretty exciting! I have a picture of it in an album somewhere. Caribou made up most of our winter meat. Our horse ran with the wild horses most of the year and just got harnessed to pull blocks of ice from the lake for drinking water and to bring in hay during the summer. Once a bear cub that had lost its mother was brought to us to raise and I have pictures of that too. I still remember neighbours I played with though we moved away when I was 10. My mother schooled us at home. Many happy (and some sad) childhood memories!
