Scope and content

No binding - album pages are loose. Black cover embossed with "Photographs" in gold. Black pages, photos glued in.
Notes with album suggest the Parkdale Train Station, Hepworth, and Balmoral. Almost all photographs peeling away from pages. Some photographs quite yellow, some fading especially around edges.

Photographs are amateur snapshots of a cottage, children and family, picnics, parks, a wedding, canoeing, the beach, biking, landscapes, an automobile with a 1920s liscence plate number, posed group shots in many different locations, a horse drawn carriage, all thought to be taken around or near the Toronto area.
One photograph appears to either be a double exposure, or a photograph taken looking through a window and has captured the reflction in the window as well as the view beyond.

Sites and locations include The Simkincoe, located at Jackson's Point, Ontario.
