- A photograph in the form of a post card of the Conover family at their home on Dundas Street, Trafalgar.
The Conover family home was 1499 Dundas Street East on part of Lot 6 Concession 1 NDS, near today's Ninth Line and Dundas, Oakville.
The people aren't identified, unfortunately. If it is Luena sitting on the rail to our left and Wilmer on the steps, it is likely after Ethel's marriage in 1916, perhaps about 1920.
A link to more information about the Conover family history in the area and their connection to Mississauga and Erindale, is provided for your further information.
