This collection of photos is from the Prentice family collection.

Cecil Felix Closs); Easton; Fleming; Gibson; Graham; Gunn; McKinlay; McLean; Molyneaux; Paul (Jessie May Molyneaux m. Jas. Arthur Paul); Prentice; Rankin (Jessie Molyneaux m. Wm. Rankin; Umpherson. The studio photos are from Arnprior, Carleton Place and Perth as well as Grand Rapids, Michigan and Newport News, Virginia. One group photo is from Iriquois, Ontario.

Lanark County group photo

Kate Palmer says: "The photo of all the ladies (and one lone man?) is a mystery. Front row third from right, seated in white dress, is Christena Graham who married James Lorne Prentice. Christena (1880-1969) was the daughter of Jeanette Fleming and William Graham of Lanark Township. I suspect this was taken c. 1915, before her marriage to Lorne. Possibly a Graham family reunion but no men. Ladies' temperance league? Church ladies' picnic? " Both this photo and the one below were probably taken in Lanark Township.
