CHARLES DOBIE : LOCAL HISTORY. ELPHIN, LANARK COUNTY, ONTARIO
Elphin, Ontario : School Class, about 1910.
Back Row, L to R:
Sherman Gordon,Robert Geddes,John Balfour,George Gordon,Mannie Gilbert,Mabel Dunlop,Iva Duncan,Laura McIntyre,Miss Annie C. McIntyre (teacher). Front Row, L to R:
Tom Balfour,Lindsay Duncan,Gerald Gordon,Dorothy Duncan,Margaret Gilbert,
Agnes Duncan,Janet Duncan,Ruby Campbell,Agnes Balfour,Margaret Balfour.
Note that there are eleven names given for the front row, but there are twelve students shown. I'm not sure yet which one is unidentified.
George Gordon's 1899 birth year has helped to date this photo to about 1910. He also appears in
another Elphin student group photo which must have been taken
a few years later. See also George's wedding photo, taken in 1926.
Since this photo is part of the Izatt family collection, it makes sense that one of the unidentified children is an Izatt.
The most likely candidate is Edith Izatt (born 1898).
