A woman holding a garage sale in the fall foliage of the Eastern Townships sold me some family photos for $2 each. This one's a photo of Alice Rousseau with Rita and Rejeanne Martin (clockwise from top left), of Sherbrooke. Would you say it's around 1940? Look at their homemade clothes and their faces bursting with character. Who would sell old family photos? I don't understand it. All I know is, with my trusty Italian magnifying glass and these photographs, I'm going on a journey beyond my own place and time.

Alice, Rita, Rejeanne

Fabulous photo. You could write a book about these three high spirited women. I think it is in the late twenty's or early thirty's. I have photos of my mother and her sisters around this time.

Re: photos
Yes I wondered if it might be earlier than 1940. That makes the photo even more intriguing. Thanks!

these photos
I think these are much older than 40's - they look, clothes and hair and even the style of the photo, more like twenties or very early thirties... just saying! So lovely to go time-travelling, no?
