Sherman (Tank) Doucette is a harmonica player, vocalist and songwriter from North Battleford, Saskatchewan. He got the name 'Tank' during a 6-month fight for his life in hospital at age 23, after he survived an explosion.
Sherman has over 700 antique harmonicas! View some of them at his online Harmonica Museum.
Karl Lorch, of Spy Hill, began building snowplanes at age 19 in 1929 and created a Canadian legend. He continued production from his garage until the mid fifties. His propeller-driven sleds helped conquer winter isolation in rural Canada until they became obsolete when all-weather roads appeared in the 1950s. Today, Lorch snowplanes have almost vanished from the Canadian Prairies save for a few parts scattered around farmyards. Spy Hill, Saskatchewan, is a community Northeast of Moosomin and Southeast of Yorkton. The history of this project is well explained at the Western Development Museum.
