Name of creator
Wynona S. (Hughes) Bunting was born in Ontario in 1880. She came with her family to Manitoba, settling first in Holland, then in Swan River where she met and married W. H. Bunting. Mr. Bunting owned and operated a general store in Swan River. The lure of the open frontier drew Mr. Bunting to The Pas where he opened another general store, ca.1910, sending for his wife and three children when the living quarters were completed. Mrs. Bunting was active in the civic life of The Pas, serving as a member of the first school board, boarding the school teacher and serving on the town council. She was an ardent curler and keen bridge player. Mrs. Bunting made weekly calls to the sick and shut-in until her sudden death in 1957.
These photographs were donated to the Dugald Costume Museum by Mrs. L. (Mary) Bunting in 1974.
