Biographical history

Fred Lohstroh was a former resident of Edmonton who once rode alongside a rural postal carrier in 1917 from Duffield to Highvale, west of Edmonton. The postal carrier sang a song about Edmonton that Fred Lohstroh remembered the lyrics and tune of. He later wrote the lyrics down and included a recording of him singing it in a donation to the City Archives. At the time of the donation, Fred Lohstroh resided in Spokane, Washington and was 80 years old.
