History appears in many forms, but one of the best ways of recounting the past is through photographs. They tell a story without words, an event without description, or a landscape without prose. Bessie has done this effectively – daily life, scenes, and special events come to life in a remarkable collection of photographs featuring the foothills and its people. These images are reinforced by extensive captions that tell the story behind them. This book is a special treat. Hugh A. Dempsey, CM, LLD Noted Canadian Historian When the Work’s All Done This Fall is the third volume in the series THE VROOMS OF THE FOOTHILLS by Bessie Vroom Ellis. Illustrated with 7 maps and over 270 photos, the captions are historical vignettes which highlight the many different ways people made a living in the late 19th and early to mid 20th centuries. The photos, which also tell of family fun, hobbies, and passions, are from the collections of descendants of pioneers and homesteaders in southwestern Alberta.
