« Photo Gallery | Lodge (David) Album

Twenty-two year old William Isaac Lodge arrived in Lake Country in 1906 and worked as a teamster for M.P. Williams. In 1911, while working and boarding with Williams, he purchased land from the Thomas Wood estate and he planted an apple orchard. Lodge later worked for Sydney Edwards and Joseph Casorso.

His brother, Charlie Lodge, immigrated in 1908 at age 31 and went to work as slaughterman at the Irrawanna pig farm in Carr’s Landing. Another brother, Alfred (age 29) and sister, Annie, immigrated from England in 1913. Alfred also worked as a teamster for M.P. Williams. Both Alf and William served during WWI.

Three of the Lodges married locally in the 1920s. William married Margery Hammond of Vernon, Charles married Ethel Sherrocks of Vernon and Annie married Walter Middleton.

The Lodge photo album was donated to the Lake Country Museum and Archives by David “Spud” Lodge, the son of William Lodge. He was raised in Winfield and went to school in Winfield and Oyama. He is a founding member of the Lake Country Cultural and Heritage Society.
