Just slipped in a little shopping

Last week, we took some of the seniors at work out for lunch.  We had some time before our reservation so we wandered through some of the shops located in the same building.  And there was an antique shop in the basement. Ahem.  Need I say more.

I found a cabinet card and a carte de visite to add to my collection.  The poor carte de visite has suffered a bit through the years. It has been folded in half and someone has taken scissors to it…probably so it would fit in an album or frame.IMG_20170502_083602793

The ladies have a bit of an 80’s bang frizz going on but some serious 90’s sleeves so I’m guessing this is an early 90’s photograph.

Gananoque is a small city in Ontario Canada. Ganonoque is a tourist town  in the summer because of the Thousand Islands area.  It is possible, these two ladies were tourists OR residents of the town.  Finley would have been the photographer.

There is an inscription on the back.

To sister Emma with best love from Bertie. (CM1- is the vendor name and price)

So one of these ladies is Bertie.  I like having a name for my photographed people!
