Possibly Temagami, Ont. area,
Gray Family photos, 1930's.
This is the envelope which contained the 14 photos (two are duplicates which aren't shown). If you recognize any of the buildings or people,
your help would be much appreciated here.
Sept. 24, 2019: I received an email from Maggie Wilson of the Cobalt Historical Society. She says in part: "I do not recognize the people or more importantly, the surroundings
as being from Cobalt. The address of the Shaw Drug Store photo envelope is addressed to Goward Ontario -- that was the former name of North Temagami. That combined with the
horses drawing a load of lumber tells me that the family came to Cobalt to develop the film, but lived south of the town. If not Goward, possibly Latchford, along the Montreal River, Gillies Depot --
centres known for the lumber industry. I can tell you that Shaw's Drug Store was at both the Silver Street and Lang Street locations during the period from 1929 to 1936. "

"Douglas Gray, 1 yr. June 12."
"I didn't know this was being taken, and it just happened to be in with envelopes, so will send it on. Maude."
The baby looks like Douglas Gray.
