1913 Sylvan Lake Stone House Cafe Ink Pen Drawing By Aeris Osborne
2022 Alberta Artist-In-Residence Project- 1912 Big Valley Railway Station Ink Pen Sketch was my 8th sketch of the series before painting on canvas.
The Stone House on 46th Street was built in 1913 by Mr. Auguste (Lucky) Loquet. He and his sister Selena immigrated from their farm in St. Omer, near Dunkerque, France. He originally homesteaded near Third Point. He was an avid hunter and trapper and worked in logging camps. He and his sister tried to live off the wild animals and birds of the area and practiced a fair amount of taxidermy. His sister kept house for him as Auguste never married. He was a wonderful story teller and lived to be in his 90’s. After his sister died he lived with the Balfontaine (Bellfontaine) family.
As stated in the Sylvan Lake News, January 5th, this historic building has since been occupied as a residence, café, retail outlet, art gallery, framing store and a day spa. (Credit: Today Ville)
