Fred Kazimer was born in Romania in 1884 and came to Canmore in 1906. He was a driver for the Canmore Mines as well as a local shoe mason. His tools are pictured. He moved to Tawatinaw to homestead around 1910 but moved back to Canmore around 1920. He operated his business out of his home, which was once located where the BMO building complex is now. Do you remember Fred? Please call the Museum and tell us your story.
