The Family of Ethel and Wilbert Bigger
- Media Type:
- Item Type:
- Two photographs of the family. Wilbert is not in the main record photograph - perhaps he is the photographer.
In the main record photograph, eldest daughter Lois is far right to Ethel, next is Russell, then Ethel with eldest child Harold on Ethel's left, twins Martha and Kathryn are in front.
There is no date on this photograph but the twins look to be almost 2 years old. (A Coyne school photograph in 1937, linked to this record, shows them at about age 10.) Its likely this photo was taken in sometime in 1928-1929.
Everyone appears in the 2nd image in this record. It was taken about 6 years later. Ethel is flanked by Kathryn and Martha in the front row. Behind from our left is Russell, father Wilbert, Lois, Harold.
In both photographs, they are standing by the front door of the Glenclare Farm house, on 6th Line by Burnhamthorpe Road.
