Friday’s Faces from the Past: Madeleine and Jacqueline Desgroseilliers

Madeleine and Jacqueline Desgroseilliers

This lovely, if somewhat damaged, photo is of my mother Jacqueline (left) and her elder sister Madeleine (sitting, centre).

Both girls were tall for their age. Mom appears to be 7-8 years old, while Madeleine is about 11-12 years old. If so, then the picture is from 1940-1941.

The location is a mystery, but since the Desgroseilliers family lived in Parry Sound, Sudbury, and Blue Water (near Sarnia), Ontario, in the early 1940s, it’s likely to be one of those places.

I don’t know who the three little ones are; could they be cousins or are they neighbors’ children?
