This Week in History – “Whopper That Got Away”

This week’s news item appeared in the  August 17, 1939 Grande Prairie Herald-Tribune. Everyone loves a good fish story and this one must be true since it was witnessed by a “prominent attorney” and a “well-known hardware man”. It is also interesting to realize that in 1939 there was a lodge and cabins at Kinuseo Falls, which doesn’t seem all that difficult to get to in the article. You can view the rest of the newspaper here.
