Amelia Ward Postcard Collection
In 2012, the Fredericton Region Museum received a donation that shows the personal life of a New Brunswick (NB) family 100 years ago! Amelia Sara Ward (1896-1987) was born in Burton and lived most of her life in Oromocto. Her family owned ‘Stocker’s Hotel’, where she met her husband, William Blair de Lacolle, of Québec. De Lacolle worked as a railroad engineer and travelled frequently between Québec, Halifax, and NB for his work. Postcards were one way a large family could stay in contact.
