Will the Real Dr. Metcalf Please Stand Up? Rare Photo Found!!

Sunday I received a note from Clayton historian Rose Mary Sarfield–Linda can you post in the tales of Almonte, and ask if anyone has a photo of Dr. Metcalf from Almonte? I have been sent a photo that may be him, but I would like to see one that is positively identified as him, to compare. Thank you!!

Well look what Rose Mary came up with!

A gentleman in Victoria BC sent it to me. The man who sent it is Doug McLean who is a descendant of the Blairs from Clayton. He wondered if it was someone from Clayton or if it was Dr. Metcalfe. It is no one from Clayton that I know, but I had only seen the photo that Sandy France posted with the hat on…But when I read your article of the red toupee that pretty well clinched it, because the hair colour is certainly unique! (Dr. Archibald Albert “Archie” Metcalfe — The Man with the Red Toupee – John Morrow)
