This picture has written on the back, Rose Farm School, 1925. The picture belonged to my Aunt, Gertrude Schmidt, who is in the picture as well as my father, Johann Schmidt. My Aunt has marked them with ink arrows. I am wondering if anyone else can identify other students, that might help with the exact location of this school. My Dad’s family arrived in Canada as a Mennonite immigrant from Russian , and I believe they attended this school while waiting to be placed on land. Also, my Dads older sister is not in the picture, as she was held back in South Hampton England for aprox 3 weeks, so they were also waiting for her.

Thanks for any info you can share with me, as I am trying to trace their movements upon arriving in Canada.
