This was the Aberdeens’ home when they visited Coldstream Ranch.
“…there is a wonderful charm in feeling that one is once more on one’s own domain & that one need not ask permission from the Government before moving a plank or ordering a plate or a duster. And then it is the first time that we have been en famille absolutely since we came to Canada…”
