Can you identify any of the people in this photo? THE ROBERT J. STEAD PHOTOGRAPH COLLECTION

Contributed by Del Dunlop

Detail of scene of downtown Lanark Village Del Dunlop says about these photographs ". . . . when I was 7 years old (1938), I went with my mother's uncle John Stead of Lanark Village to the Gemmill farm where Sylvanus Gemmill had just died. The contents of the house were being discarded. The bulk of the material were old newspapers and journals. The newspapers were most likely the earliest Lampton Observer (?) which had been sent home by an earlier Gemmill. At the age of seven I was outraged that everything was to be burned. We did manage to get a box of negatives which could only be Robert Stead's archives. There were many, many boxes of negatives . . . ."

The laser printer copies from which these images were taken, have been given to the Lanark and District Museum, Lanark Village.
