NEW YEAR'S CARD
This card was probably given by Annie McMurray (daughter of Harriet Inkster McMurray) to her aunt Marak Inkster.
A note on the back reads:
For Mollie with Bella's love
'Mollie' is probably Mary Inkster Walker, the daughter of John George Inkster. You can find her story earlier in this album.

A modern note on the back indicates that this photo might show the two eldest sons of Ellen Inkster and Archie McDonald.
The back reads:
To remind my dear old friends of the name of Inkster or who once bore it. What I am, and shall be always, their sincere and affectionate
Harriet A. Boomer -
in old St. Cross days, (Harriet Mills) -
We don't know who Harriet Boomer was, but she must have given this card to Marak and Harriet Inkster McMurray -- who attended St. Cross Ladies School with sisters Jane and Ellen.

Harriet Inkster McMurray returned to the family homestead and built a fascinating legacy after the death of her fur-trader husband.
The photos in our collection show that she took her daughters on a trip east to Toronto in the 1880s, likely riding the new railroad there.
