Arthur Butcher- Victoria British Columbia Canada

Here is Arthur Butcher. Written on the back in pencil is his name plus date is either 1812 or 1892-1897. The first date is hard to determine. Photographer Butcher & Co., Victoria, B.C.
(I wonder if he is the photographer or related to the photographer).

Grace and Arnold McNee, Wellwood, Manitoba, Canada

Here is a smaller cabinet card of sister and brother. On the back is written in ink 'Grace and Arnold McNee, Wellwood, Man 1904'. See they are sitting so still and polite, just waiting to go to the home they lost so long ago. Reuniting them with their family would be wonderful. I found them in Michigan.

Mrs W. Bouland or Mrs W. Boreland, Peterboro Ontario Canada

Here is a cabinet card of husband and wife. I found them wandering in an antique store in Michigan. Looks like the photo is about 1900-1910 era is my guess. On the back written in pencil and the best I can interpret is "Mrs. W. Bouland, Ottawa" or "Mrs. W. Boreland, Ottawa". Photographer is P.H. Green, Grand New Studio, Hunter St., Peterboro. I believe this is in Ontario Canada.
