– Sold Out

Woman and young boy posing outside of a not too fancy house. Photographer was from Toronto, so assuming this is from Toronto area.

House appears unfinished. Other house in area. Outhouses. Unpaved.

Based on ‘NOKO’ photographic paper used, dates from 1907-1929.

On back ‘Photo by H.J. FLEMING 642 Yonge St. Toronto Ont.’ Harry J. Fleming was at this address from 1914-1921.

Text on back:

Dear George,
Many thanks for your photograph you shall have one of us when we have them took, but we are waiting till we can afford good ones.
Lena(?)
 

Perhaps a husband away at War?

Corners are worn. Some toning, smudges. Back is very smudged, but legible.
