Taken to the right of the porch at aunt Lou and Allie's Red Top [in Bridgewater, NS]. Mum puts her age at 18 - therefore Hal is 16. The picture can then be dated summer of 1934."

  • Notes 
    • Dad, Claire, Susan and I visited with Catherine at her home in Halifax - July 2005.  She remembered Nellie Davison Howell as "a very beautiful woman".  Catherine recalled a dinner party at Frank Davison's house in Bridgewater where Nellie attended with her husband "The Baron" (Grunnburger probably).  The Baron apparently made quite a fuss over the fact that the table was set for 13 people, and would not sit down until a 14th was found.  Catherine's mother ran home to get her brother as the 14th.
