Theresa Mary Burke - photo page
(Click on any photo to enlarge.)
School children in Louisdale. Herman (back row, on your left) and Theresa Burke (white skirt), perhaps Bernard in front of Herman, and perhaps Leo Landry in front.
The teacher is in the back row on your right. The three faces in the photo above that are scratched out are of boys that Theresa didn't like.
Two pictures from the same day, at a place called Rocky Point, located west of Halifax in the direction of St. Margaret's Bay; 36 kilometers, 36 minutes in a modern car on modern roads. Another 20 kilometers and you would reach Peggy's Cove. Rocky Point has a view of Boutilier's Point (where we lived briefly), about 2 kilometers across an arm of the bay, and of the shoreline and beaches of Queensland, about 5 kilometers across the bay.
The glass pop bottles that Ruby and Jean are holding are 7 Up.

If you have arrived here because of the "chart depot" gang, and you know anyone in this picture, please email me at camlonghurst @ yahoo dot ca. Besides my mother Theresa Burke (polka dots in first picture, striped top in second picture), one of the women is Jean Pierce (or Pearce, head showing above the tree in second picture, and in the next photo below). The manager, I believe, was named Joe May (could be left-most in first picture). Link to a third picture...
The same fountain, shown below, in a picture taken in 1980, reminds one of how the old black-and-whites can be more factual than representative.
Links to a short video clip on Halifax in wartime.
Reading Life magazine issue from May 22, 1948.
