Ludwig Adolf Frank was born February 22, 1907 in Worstadt, Germany. Little is known of his life except that he was a cabinet maker by trade. Frank was interned by British authorities during World War II as an enemy alien. He was shipped to Canada with other internees and spent his time there at Fort Lennox, Ile-aux-Noix, Quebec. His British address in official documents was listed as Low Fell. In 1943, Frank returned to England.
While at Fort Lennox, Frank befriended one of the Veteran Guards, Major Angus P. Cameron (1885-1952). Cameron was a volunteer in the Fort Garry Horse in 1914 and later joined the Winnipeg Rifles in France. He was injured in the trenches and was joined to the Canadian Army Pay Corp. Frank presented Cameron with a handmade wooden inlay art piece of a sailing ship, created by Frank during his time at Fort Lennox.
Consists of approximately 30 letters all to Ben and Sarah Millman from various Canadian Armed Forces servicemen.
Correspondence, World War II
Some letters extremely fragile, others in multiple pieces.
The Millmans opened a table tennis shop on Fairmount near Park Avenue in 1938 and later converted it into a general store with a pinball machine, candies, etc. They resided at the back of the store. It remained open until 1948 when Mr. Millman purchased a taxi. He remained a taxi man for 40 years. The kids who used to gather at the shop grew up and joined the Armed Forces. They wrote letters and in turn received news of the neighborhood from the Millmans.
