CHARLES DOBIE : LOCAL HISTORY
PLATT FAMILY PHOTOS

Platt Family Photos

These photos were found in the stock of a Lanark County, Ontario antique dealer in the spring of 2000. There were many more photos but these were the only ones with names on the back. A packet of letters concerning this family was also seen with these photos, but was not purchased. Postmarks were as late as 1948.
