"Our Bicycle Trip"
These photographs show Lieutenant Alex Ross and his wife Mona on a May 1943 cycling holiday in Prince Edward Island.
After Alex Ross had served on the staff at HMCS Kings, the Royal Canadian Navy's junior officer training centre at Halifax, and prior to joining HMCS St. Croix, he and Mona took a cycling vacation in Prince Edward Island. They visited the area around Brackley and the popular nearby beaches. Given the wartime rationing of gasoline and tires, vacations like these were an alternative to automobile trips.
