Latest addition to my collection

HAPPY CANADA DAY!

A few weeks ago, I went on a family outing for lunch in a small city north of Winnipeg.  After a pleasant lunch, I convinced my clan to stop at a local antique shop.  I saw many things I wanted to buy but I had to put it all back so I could afford a cabinet card album.

Unfortunately, there is some damage.

I’d like to fix it but I don’t want to make it worse so that will involve some research on my part.

The first photo.  Unfortunately, it is also in bad shape.  Too much sun perhaps?

You can still make out the figures.  IMG_20190701_082831621

Mother and child.  I can’t make out if it is a boy or a girl. Seems to be a fairly big child and I would think a boy would have been in pants by that size.  I could be wrong.  I wish I could make out more details on the dress and hat.  That hat has some serious height!

Rest assured, there are better photos in this album, that I will share later on.
