Unknown Pictures of Carleton Place Folk Identified



RossMrsDr (1).JPG

This picture is of Mrs. Ross (Dr.) who visited Mississippi Lake near Drummond Cente and stayed in a tent with two young boys, Norman and Jack. 

Her maiden name could be Tysick, Caswell, Willows, Code or other.  The boys were probably her grandsons. The picture seems to be taken at the Flintoft’s farm or Mrs. Ross’ home in Carleton Place. Love the shadow of the bowler hat on the gentleman taking the photo.
