More truth than poetry here. This compelling shot, taken by my mother, Gladys, on the famous 1936 honeymoon at Lumina, Lake of Bays, Muskoka, Ontario, Canada, preceded the Great Sunburn. Both parents, who were otherwise intelligent people who KNEW BETTER, went out for a day-long paddle in their bathing suits, & the rest is painful history. Both fair of skin, both broiled.
Both brilliant canoists, by the way.
Charles (Charlie) William McConnell (1910 ~ 1979), handsome as ever.
