In 1892 the Man family took a trip to the pagoda at Pegu. A ‘poem’ was written commemorating the trip which can be read here
On the 1906 census last line is noted Harry Man, Beatrice’s brother, aged 31. Was Harry just visiting or was he maybe trying out the life in Canada? We know that by 1909 he was in Hamburg, Germany and the guess is he was passing through as a visitor.
Below: the 1921 Census of Canada, the Adam family is the last unit.
