dc.descriptionThe album is attributed to the Reid family of Port Colborne. The 1921 Census of Canada lists a Reid family in Port Colborne living on Charlotte Street. Some of the homes in the background of the photographs appear similar to homes on Charlotte Street in 2024. At this time, it is unknown who the members of the family are. The newspaper clippings are from the New York Times picture section, August-September 1918. The clippings show the Allied efforts in France, Italy and Palestine. Photographs include family and friends of the Reid family of Port Colborne and include an engineer on the new [fourth] Welland Canal. Other locations include Niagara Falls, Nickel Beach, Port Colborne High School and various points along the fourth Welland Canal. Photographs include early aviation and a train wreck in Port Colborne, automobiles, family pets, bicycles, schools, early telephone switchboard, swimming, children’s picnics, Maple Leaf Mills, Welland Canal construction, cottages and beach images.en_US
