Smiths Falls, Ontario : Ethel and Frankie Patterson, 1895.
This photo is from the studio of J.Moore, Smiths Falls (embossed into the cardboard matting).
On the back of the photo is glued a label with the inscription:
August 1st 1895
Ethel Clarissa Patterson
Age 7 years 5 months
Frankie Jeffrey Patterson
Age 4 years 10 months
No studio name or date on this photo.
On the back is written:
Aunt Sarah Jeffrey. Mother.
Ethel & Frank.
These photos were purchased at an antique store or flea market in the Perth/Smiths Falls area.
A quick look at the records on familysearch.org shows that Ethel Patterson was living in Smiths Falls
in 1951, when she registered her own birth. Frankie's birth record shows his given name was actually Francis.
