Mon blogue d’aujourd’hui.
La mère de la personne qui m’a envoyé cette photo est décédée le 4 septembre. Sa mère est la petite-fille de la jeune fille à droite en robe blanche dans la 2e rangée de cette photo prise en 1912.

Cette jeune fille est Odna Lagasse (19 ans en 1912). Elle a marié Frank Ritchie. Je voulais vous parler en septembre de mes rencontres virtuelles que j’ai eues avec ces personnes durant l’été.
