    Albert Mallett Sod Home c 1899
    Albert Mallett Sod Home c 1899
    Albert William Mallett and Mary Jane [Corden] applied for a homestead and received, for the price of $10, one of the last homesteads in the district. This homestead was at 32-14-29, McAuley, Manitoba, Canada.

    There was no home on the homestead, so for the first winter their home was a cave, or rather two caves side by side (one for the animals and one for the family) dug into the hillside. The next couple of years was spent enlarging the stable (made of sod) dividing half for a home and half for the animals. This is a picture of the family in front of that sod home. It wasn't until four years had passed that a house was built.
