1954 Flashback - John Wallace, president P.C. Fed. of Agriculture

     Thanks to Donna (Barbour) MacPhee and her daughter Rhonda for sending along a few clippings from Donna's Scrapbooks!!
     The John P. *Johnny* Wallace's homestead was located at the corner of the Western Road and the Wells Road - it was the first farm on the left as you entered Alma coming from Elmsdale.  Wilbert Jeffery said Johnny was a great farmer and had a good farm.  He said on of Johnny's neighbours told him he looked forward to visiting Johnny and talk about farming and see his animals.  Johnny's sons George and Earl carried on the farm and following their deaths the land was sold out of the family.  
     It's sad to see the big field where the house and barns once stood - there's not a trace left of the homestead!
