Early Pictures from Ingonish. Although these appeared in 1918 in a magazine, they are likely much older. They are not identified but they are surely my relatives as we were related to everyone there. All these pictures are by Edith S. Watson, an amazing photographer from Connecticut. Ms. Watson and her life partner, Victoria Hayward, travelled across Canada, taking photos of ordinary people…even in some fairly remote areas as Ingonish certainly was when these photos were taken.
