Like other pictures in this section this picture is a memento of four friends and a moment in their lives. These women lived in Sundridge around 1890. Going from left to right: Aggie Buchanan, Harriet MacChristie, Lettie Poole and Jenny Christie.

Here is the Harrison family capturing an important moment in their lives, the birth of their daughter Alice. Their daughter is so important that only her name was written on the back of the image.

The Smith family photograph. This picture was taken around 1900. Again, the child is so important that only her name is known. The girl's name is Agnus and would later marry a McIntyre. If you look closely the family is sitting on a bear skin rug.
