Reproduction of a wartime photo album inherited by artist Michael Snow from his aunt Dimple F. Snow (1896-1978) who created it during and after the First World War (1913-1921). Dimple’s two brothers, Geoffrey (who died at war) and Gerald (the artist’s father) fought in the war, and the album, though intended as gift to be sent to those fighting oversees, was never sent. Recorded here is the happiness of the well-to-do (despite the war in Europe) at home in Toronto, and on vacation in the regions of Muskoka and Haliburton, Ontario. Printed in an edition of 1000.
