Aulack - Giana Singh and Tante Kaur - 1930s

Collector/curator's description reads: “Circa 1938, Vancouver. Photo of Giana Singh Aulack (left) and his wife Tante Kaur Aulack. Giana arrived in Canada by ship in 1906 as a British subject from Punjab, India. He worked first on the railroad; then in a sawmill in New Westminster while living with some other single Punjabi men in a cookhouse (sort of a communal residence). Over time he saved and bought three homes while having a trucking business. Around 1931, during the Great Depression, he travelled to India to get married. He brought along with him a photo of the Vancouver City Hall and claimed it was his home. He won over and married Tante Kaur. However, on his return to Canada, much to his horror, Giana learned he had lost all three homes and his trucks due to the depression that was gripping the country. Tante Kaur arrived in 1934 only to find the comfortable life she thought she might have was gone. The couple would raise eight children. The oldest, Germael Singh Aulack, was born in India but became a Flying Officer in the RCAF. He perished in an airplane accident at the age of 23 years. The other children were born in Canada: David Singh; Sadu Singh; Gaily kaur; Jernail Singh; Chindow Kaur; Mindow Kaur and Javinder Singh.”
