Remember my post of July 1st, a painting of an old house on a prairie hill near Moose Jaw? Well here’s a close-up of a window, and the prairie beyond. Due to wonders of the internet, the current owner of this house found my blog, and emailed me with a little history. This house was built around 1904 by a horse rancher and telegraph operator for the CPR, John McFayden and was, as I guessed, a palace for it’s time and place. It had indoor plumbing and steam heating. Be sure to look for it on your way through on the Trans Canada.
