Little Britain - German Settlement

Looking for stories, pictures and other info about settlers from Little Britain in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

My great-grandfather, Adolf Holcher/Hoelscher was one of the settlers and I am looking to learn more about what it would have been like for him, and maybe even trace down a few pictures of the settlement or even some of him and his family.

Little Britain was a settlement built in 1927. It was organized by German/Canadian father Kierdorf and my great-grandfather's sister's husband Fritz Schneider. The group was made up of about 100 German immigrants coming from Westphalia area and Baden.

Attached are two pictures of the families, one coming off their ship the Marloch and the other (I am assuming) in Little Britain.
