Hooper-Squires Photo Archives Treasure No. 6

This is the 6th photo in our collection of rescued photographs of the Hooper and Squires families of St. Mary's Ontario Canada. To view all the photos in this collection as they are published here on Olive Tree Genealogy blog, click on Hooper-Squires Photo Archives link.

This lovely photo taken at Niagara Falls has writing on the back as it was a postcard sent to Mr. Edgar Hooper from his sister who was on her honeymoon at the time. I assume this Edith Hooper and her new husband Joseph Camm, as they married on September 10, 1910
Sept. 19/10
Hello Edgar, How is Ettie? Hope she is better by this time. We are well and having a pretty nice honeymoon.   Will soon be home. Your loving sister

Do you think it is really a picture of Niagara Falls, or a photographer's studio backdrop?

Definitely a studio backdrop. I didn't make that clear that they were no doubt in Niagara Falls for their honeymoon but this is a studio photo

Thanks for catching that!

Very nice series of posts, Lorine. I sure wish I was a descendant of the family! I'm so glad there were enough people in your family who cared to keep them so that they eventually will make their way to further preservation.

I have a photo of some of my children's paternal ancestors who had their photograph taken with a Niagara Falls backdrop that I'll have to dig out. They lived in Niagara Falls at one time.

Thanks for sharing!
