Unidentified individuals filming a scene in Port Glasgow.

In 1928, John immigrated to Canada, where he spent six months in Saskatchewan before moving to Hamilton, Ontario. In 1929, Maria also immigrated to Canada with their daughter. They joined John in Hamilton, Ontario where he was working at an iron foundry. Here, they lived on Mary Street for 10 years and had a son, Edward Hans and another daughter, Anna Marie.
