Thanksgiving Day, 1955 My cousin's wife cuddles her baby, her father cuddles her doggie, Fifi, at our dining room table. Pumpkin pie remains on the plate show the meal's over, so no, Fifi was not a guest for dinner itself. I wonder how our own dog, Missie, felt about this interloper being allowed in the dining room when she was always restricted to the kitchen. Those were always my favorites of my mother's curtains, but photos show that by 1958 they'd been replaced with some boring ones. Kodachrome slide by my brother. View full size.

I found this photo at the St. Lawrence Antique Market in Toronto. It shows three members of the Canadian Expeditionary Force at Camp Borden. The names of the three soldiers have been written on the photo and the inscription on the back reads "Camp Borden, July 1916."
I've always been fascinated by the First World War, and this is probably my favourite photograph in my collection. With a little bit of digging, I discovered that the three soldiers are Private James Edward Weaver, Private Alfred Matthews, and Private Richard Wharton. They all hailed from Waterford, Ontario and the surrounding area and belonged to the 133rd Regiment (Norfolk's Own).
If anyone has any further information about these three and whether or not they survived the war, it would be greatly appreciated. I've grown rather fond of them! View full size.
Dated April 1968, my grandmother Grace with friend of hers and daughter. This was taken about a year or so before my grandfather retired and moved him and grandma to Arizona. View full size.
A number of photos of this charming gal were donated to a charity sale in Washington state. A friend sent them to me. Unfortunately, they're not labeled on the back. Photo by Hartsook Studio, Seattle. View full size.
Pikes Peak area 1956. My 93 year old grandfather cannot remember what camera he used - knowing that it wasn't his box camera since his wife is obviously holding it in her hand. View full size.
