We continue our Remembrance Day theme this week, helping the Iroquois Falls Museum identify people, places and events in its thousands of photographs.
This one is obviously from a Remembrance Day ceremony at the cenotaph, in the same location it is today. Museum volunteer Danny McIntyre thinks it was taken in the late 1940s or early 50s.
“The evidence to that effect is that the old curling rink is still in the background of the picture,” he says. “Now, the cenotaph is shrouded in black, so we’re wondering if perhaps it’s the dedication, the first Remembrance Day with that cenotaph.”
McIntyre is hopeful of someone reaching out with some helpful information, “…and identify any of the people in the parade.”
