    THANK YOU PATRICIA…OF COURSE I NEVER MET HER,BUT IT WAS POINTED OUT TO ME THAT SHE HAD WORKED ALMOST TILL SHE DIED…1919………SO IF ANY OF THE WEE ONES SHE DELIVERED ARE STILL AROUND THEY WOULD BE ABOUT 90.TROUBLE IS,ONLY THEIR MOTHERS WOULD HAVE KNOWN WHO DELIVERED THEM.

    I love looking at these old vintage images – so much character and charm – like stepping back into another time and place :)

  • THANK YOU.THE HOUSE SHE LIVED IN IN VANCOUVER IS STILL THERE….I THINK THEY MOVED INTO IT IN ABOUT 1905
