Iroquois Falls came to be in 1912...  Montrock and Ansonville, two small hamlets, sprung up adjacent to the main townsite.  They became part of Iroquois Falls in 1979.  When the Province of Ontario mandated amalgamation the hamlets of Monteith, Porquis Junction and Nellie Lake became part of Iroquois Falls.

The print depicts a varied life here in the north.  Farming, fishing, snow machining, and a paper mill which began it all.
