April 13th In Nevard History

Yesterday, April 13, marked the day in 1903, that my Nevard ancestors first set foot on Canadian soil. Ernest and Arthur Nevard arrived on the Barr colonist's boat, Lake Manitoba, at Halifax harbour the day before. The 13th was Ernest's 25th birthday.
This photo is likely one of the earliest I have of them. Building their first home in what would later become Saskatchewan. Ernest on the left.
I was less than 5 years old when Ernest Nevard died so my visual memories of him are limited to photos like this one from 1954.
