Today’s Sunday snapshots were all taken by my Nana, Glenna Golden (nee Hare). Her pictures illuminate the year 1943 in Moncton, New Brunswick.
During this time, Moncton was part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan – a program to train Allied air crews during the Second World War. Service Flying Training Schools were run by the RCAF and the RAF. Her photos give us a very Canadian “Bomb Girls-esque” peek into events, friendships, technology and architecture of the time.
I think I know where I may have inherited my love for photography…
Hope you enjoy Sunday Snapshots – 1943
Thanks Alex for posting these pictures. I have recently been looking into my family history. My grandparents meet and married in Moncton in August 1943 while my grandfather was trading at the Pilot school. It was nice to see pics of their times. Sharon.
Hey Sharon! I’m so glad you stopped by!
If you’re looking for more photos (maybe your grandfather is in them?) I have a flickr account with an album here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/afrankbot/albums/72157662707779609
