Ponoka’s early doctors would face overwhelming challenges

!This classic home on 51 Street Ponoka was built in 1922, and as well as the residence of Dr. and Mrs. Melvin Graham and his family, would also serve as the office of his medical and optometry practise, and in many cases as a ‘kitchen table surgery’ and treatment centre. The congenial and likeable gentleman would faithfully serve thousands of patients from our town and county until his death in 1962. Inset photo of Dr. Graham.  - Photo courtesy of Barry Neath
