Sally Marshall's Diary


Have had a look around the house today & like it very much. It is built of wood & painted white, has a drawing room on the front, dining room at back, nice hall down side leading to kitchen & small scullery, stairs lead out of the hall, one bedroom & a sitting room. On front upstairs long landing & two bedrooms & bathroom at back, all good big rooms & each bedroom has a built in wardrobe, plenty of windows, & all fitted with fine wire screens to keep out flies and dust, also doors. In fact it's a real dandy house, but it should be as it is $30 a month. Underneath is a good big basement (cellar) with hot and cold water & every convenience for washing, coal place, & heating apparatus, which in winter heats every room. The floors are all either painted or stained. The walls distempered & fitted with picture rails. Steps lead on to the verandah & to the front door, there is a verandah on a level with bedrooms both front & back. Everything is made of wood even the sidewalk in the street & the road is not paved & grass grows each side. At the back we have a splendid view, over a valley on to some hills beyond & at the bottom of the garden is the river Saskatchewan, wide and full of fish & gold. Kate only move in this house last Friday so she has not quite straight yet. My head got so dirty traveling I have been spring cleaning it tonight & should so much have liked one of Mrs. Fields Shampoos. There's a dog barking somewhere down in the valley, not far away & I wish it had a hot potato in its throat. Will turn in now, so Goodnight.



The House on Jasper Avenue - 1910


by George Norman Hodson


James emigrated to Canada and lived in Edmonton, Alberta. Turned up in Loughborough in 1945 when, as a Canadian Government Officer, he was supervising the voting of soldiers stationed in England for a Canadian Parliamentary Election.


Some years later, when on a business trip through Canada, I happened to get stuck in Edmonton Airport for an hour or two , I looked in their telephone directory, and found a number of Hodson's so perhaps there is a branch of the Loughborough Hodson's there.
