This post card was sent to my grandfather from his neighbour. The village of Milden, Saskatchewan is a small farming community. My grandparents, Emma (CLARK) and George JOHNSON (a.k.a. JOHNSTON) moved to Milden in 1905 and were one of the first pioneering families. They lived in a sod house from 1905 until 1908. I still have cousins living in Milden. The 2006 Census Canada recorded a population of 172.
