Description
Framed black and white photograph of the Sweet family (John Blake Sweet Jr., Rosamond Sweet, and their children) at the Sweetacres farm in 1902. This farm is located around the intersection of Glencolin Line and Rogers Road of Aylmer. We see the farmhouse from the road. It is a one-storeyed, sided building, with a sheltered porch, lined with a decorative railing. A large black cherry tree sits in the center of the image, in front of the house. The edge of the property is lined with a white or brightly-coloured fence with horizontal rails, with a gate at the left side of the image sheltered by an arch of foliage. In front of the fence is a dog, unnamed, and Eugene Lewis Sweet, holding the reigns of a chestnut or roan horse with white stockings, identified as Rosamond's riding horse, Billy. Eugene wears a boater's hat, a white collared shirt, suspenders, and tall leather boots. Both the horse and the dog face the left. At the far right of the image is John Blake Sweet Jr. and a hired hand, standing in front of the house. Rosamond is seated on the right side of the porch, holding Melba, and another adult is seated next to her, holding Maud. Another adult holding a child sits at the top of the stairs to the porch, and another adult holding a child sits at the left side of the porch. The image has an embossed black matting with a beige inner border. It is displayed in a wood and plaster frame coated in gold leaf, carved in high relief. The outer border of the frame bears a repeating, organic or botanical pattern of leaf-like flourishes. There is no backing behind the matting, which is held in place by a series of small nails. At either side on the back of the frame is a metal loop, to which a brown string is tied. Rosamond Celia Caroline (McKenney) Sweet (December 11, 1863 - October 13, 1962) John Blake Sweet Jr. (July 25, 1860 - May 11, 1956) Eugene Lewis Sweet (January 2, 1892 - June 25, 1982) Lucretia Maud Sweet (March 5, 1898 - October 3, 1969) Melba Rosamond Sweet (December 20, 1900 - January 17, 2003)

Description
Black and white photograph of a family of five (which notes identify as "The Lonback Family"). The supposed mother and father sit at the right and left of the image, respectively. The man is balding, bears a moustache, and wears a suit with a tie. The woman wears a dark-coloured dress with large, puffy sleeves, and embroidery on her chest. Between them sits the apparent youngest of the group, a little girl with ringlets at each side of her face and a bow on the left side of her head. She wears a bright-coloured dress decorated with lace. Behind the three seated figures are two more girls. The girl on the left wears a bow at either side of her head, and a brightly-coloured dress decorated with vertical stripes. The girl on the right wears her hair up, with a bow at the back of her head, and wears a bright-coloured, gingham-patterend dress. Of note, the three girls are smiling, and their parents do not. The photograph's matting is a dark blue or navy, with a white inner border. At the bottom right of the matting is the stamp of photographer Poole of St. Catharines. Displayed in a golden-coloured wooden frame and overlaid with glass. Possible gold leaf. The outermost border of the frame is decorated with a botanical design carved into relief on plaster. On the back of the frame is a sticker which reads "Mr. G.O. Howse, 349 Sunset Drive, St. Thomas, Ont. 631-4253 area code 519."

Photograph of a man, woman, child, and dog. They are sitting on chairs, with a dog on the mans lap and a baby on the womans lap. They are identified below as "Daddie and Rowlo, Momma and Hilda Somelly or Someily". The year 1910 is handwritten on the reverse. In the background the backdrop for the photograph can be seen against a brick wall.

Hand-painted scenic backdrops were popular in portrait photography studios from the 1860s until the 1920s.
