Kristine Carpenter, left, and Shirley Morrish couldn’t wait to open their copies of “Rainy River Valley Beginnings,” the new book by local historian Merv Ahrens featuring the pioneer photography of William Hampden Tener, during a launch yesterday evening at the Fort Frances Museum attended by more than 50 district residents. The book is available for $25 at the museum.
