I have over a hundred others with no names😔seems they were all taken in the states…old old pics….some tin .. my Grandmother Addie went to nursing school in Mass… I sent her  Grad pic and her wedding pic…
I am looking at the back of some of them there are postage stamps with lines drawn through them 2 cent stamps with George Washington’s pics.

Picture one   says Aunt  Lonie and Uncle Charlie………(2) Mary,George,Helen and Gordon Chalmers  1906 (3,4) ??   (5) Margaret Edwards…my grandmothers cousin…..(6.7.8) ?   (9) women and boy   says Nettie Hall and son Lawry or could be Larry

We have a lot of pictures of Aunt Lonie……she might be originally from Smiths Falls…..but she ended up in Nova Scotia after her husband passed in the states….so not sure if she came from here and went to the states or Smith Falls have some letters where my Grandmother went there to be with her when he passed and took her home to NS…
