I reunite identified family photos that I find in antique shops and second hand stores with genealogists and family historians. If you see one of your ancestors here and would like to obtain the original, feel free to contact me. Donations of pre-1920 photographs are also most welcome. I hope you enjoy your visit!

What a Shame Wednesday, Unknown Mother & Daughter, 1907 - 1909
This lovely mother-daughter postcard portrait from about 1908-1910 was found in an antique shop in Airdrie, Alberta. Unfortunately, the little note on the reverse doesn't provide any hints to the identity of the pair, or to place where it was taken:
Just to show you how Canadian air suits me, do not be long before you write, with love to you all, Hettie.
We know the postcard dates to about 1907-1909 because of the AZO stamp box's diamond corners. I am guessing it was displayed for some time on a wall or display area because of the large hole in the top centre.
Wouldn't it be great if someone recognized this picture?
