Flyback Fridays - Dr. Anne Crowley 2011 - Early Dentistry

Welcome to Flyback Fridays - a glimpse into Pemberton’s past!  This season we will bring you stories and videos from Tea & Tales and our video archives over the last decade that highlight Pioneer life and the resiliency of early settlers and First Nations.  We will also share videos and stories that show how local residents have responded to emergencies and challenges in the past, illustrating the power of community ties through all kinds of difficulties – yesterday and today.

This is an excerpt from Tea & Tales in 2011.  In this excerpt Dr. Anne Crowley talks about Pemberton's first dentist, Sigrid Gimse, who provided dentistry services to people in Pemberton, Mt. Currie and Lillooet after emigrating in the 1920s.  The video is a little blurry but the story Anne tells is very clear.  Please note there is an error in the caption for the photo of "Gunnar" Gimse with his parents.
