Exploring Photos with the NOTL Museum: Second World War salvage drive
Exploring photos with the Niagara-on-the-Lake Museum.

During the Second World War, the Newark chapter of the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire (IODE) held weekly salvage drives to raise money for the Navy League, milk for the British Children Fund and parcels for local servicemen. The women obtained a truck from town council to assist with their collection drives. The group also maintained a white elephant shop and helped with the canteen at the local training camp. Pictured here at the salvage barn, from left, are Mrs. Mae Librock, Mrs. June Bishop, Mrs. Edith Currie, Mrs. Daisy Gordon, Mrs. C.H.E. Smith, regent, Mrs. L. Hardison, Mrs. Margaret Morgan and Mrs. Gertrude Gordon. Lest we forget all the men and women in the armed forces and support services for all they did, and continue to do, for us.
