Found Foote Photo #12: Diamond Anniversary

"I’m enclosing an L.B. Foote family photo taken in September 1942.

The McCowan family arrived in Manitoba from Pertheshire, Scotland in 1921.

This one of the original photos given to family members on the occasion of the diamond (60th) wedding anniversary of William and Helen McCowan.

The small photo in the corner of their oldest son, who was in the air force during WWII. Their children are sitting beside them and one son is behind Helen. The rest of the people in the photo are sons-in-law and daughters-in-law and grandchildren.

My husband is the boy in front of William.

I met Mr. Foote in the latter part of his life. The McCowans became friends of his, as they lived at 406 Wardlaw Avenue and he lived on Gertrude Avenue. They both belonged to St. Augustine Church near the corner of River and Osborne Street.
