When executors bring a collection of photographs into the museum they are often looking for a place to honour someone’s past. This image was received in 1999 as part of the Edythe Ball collection. Luckily it came with information inscribed on the back of the photo: “To Our Dear Gramma and Zeph with love Doris and D’Arcy.” The names Zephie and D’Arcy gave it away. A further bit of sleuthing helped us make contact with a relative who identified the couple and their attendants. In the process, we were promised a family tree to help with further photograph identification. The photo was taken by Doug Kermode in Vernon. Unfortunately, the event wasn’t recorded in the Observer.
