Unknown Family, Carleton Place, Ontario, 1928.
These two photos were found in an antique store in Almonte, Ontario, during the winter of 2020.
Unfortunately the people are identified only by first name. The same family seems to be involved – the house is the same, and the
girl, Dorothy, appears in both photos. The first name "Erdis" is unique to the 1921 census, but it belongs to a
child in New Brunswick, and none of his siblings' names match the names in this photo.
January 4, 2020 : Thanks to the
Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum or
(see them on Facebook) for identifying the location
of this house. It is 266 Bridge Street, Carleton Place. The name of the family is still a mystery. Does anyone know of an Erdis?
On the back of the photo is written: "Taken June 15th the day we left Carleton Place / 1928 / Dorothy, Erdis, Ian and Lloyd".
On the back of the photo is written: "Donald, Allan, Ida, Frank, Dorothy".
Can you provide complete names, corrections or comments?
