Hullo Uncle Georg! from Gerald Carrington, Winnipeg, Manitoba, 1913
The reverse of this postcard photograph is inscribed, "Gerald F. Carrington on his first birthday, March 14, 1913" The photo was taken by A. L. Ford at 528 1/2 Main Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba.
I found a Gerald Edmund Francis Carrington, born the 14th of March 1912 in Toronto York County, Ontario in Ontario, Canada Births, 1869-1913. His parents are listed as John Carrington and Annie Dolby, who were married in England on April 15, 1911.
Gerald and his parents can be found in the 1916 Canada Census at 612 Alexander Street in Winnipeg. Gerald now has three younger siblings: Mona, 3; John, 1; and George, a newborn. Gerald's father, John, is a "conductor" at St. Roy [?].
