The URL to my site related to the Peden's of Pine Falls and Winnipeg Manitoba has changed to


Hugh Peden

Synopsis of site:

Early Days in Scotland & Canada - Recollections of my Grandfather - William Peden - including his training and preparation for World War I with the 8th Battalion Royal Winnipeg Rifles, his Arrival in France in which he describes the First Battle Battle of Ypres where he survived the first German gas attack of the war, and a Post War Retrospective . As well, recollections and many humorous stories of life and times in Scotland in the late 1890's and in Canada at the turn of the century. The Blind School Master, A New Suit and a Lucky Tree, Hanging The Dookut and The Sunday School Jaunt are fanciful recollections of boyhood in Scotland. Included are short biographies of both his grandfathers David Peden, and William Coburn. Wee Tom was the youngest of the family who passed away in infancy and my Grandfather's visit to his grave some 50 years after.

Last Days of Steam - The humorous stories of my father - Allan Peden - working for Canadian National Railways from 1951 to 1960 - recounted in The Last Days of Steam - an era when steam powered locomotives were at their height and then abandoned as they were replaced by diesel engines. As part of the Pine Falls 75th Anniversary (Celebration 2002), my Dad has put together an online photo album of pictures he has taken during the time he worked at the Abitibi-Price mill in Pine Falls.
