1917 Scarborough’s Map showing Rural Municipality Numbers as of 1917, and sections on a township range map. Historic railways are noted upon the map, not highways. Overlayed on top of the map is the Old Bone Trail, or Goose Lake Trail as set out by C. Howard Shillington in his book “Historic Land Trails of Saskatchewan. The Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area on parts of S 22 and 23 township 36 range 6 west of the third meridian was nestled amid railway sidings and before the era of rails, the afforestation area was traversed by freighters on the Old Bone Trail carrying a load of bones to Saskatoon for further shipping northward bound to Minnesota. In the early 1900s the traffic on the Old Bone Trail reversed, and the early immigrant pioneers carried wagonloads of settler effects to their homestead claims. The settlements along the old Bone Trail between Rosetown and Saskatoon are those that are now recognized on Saskatchewan Highway 7, as the railway ran parallel to the trail, and the highway parallel to the railway once it was straightened circa 1960. Attached is a map from 1917.

“Our world in stupor lies;
Yet, dotted everywhere,
Ironic points of light
Flash out wherever the Just
Exchange their messages.”
~W.H. Auden, “September 1, 1939”
