Oh Baby! Double Trouble

F. W. KELSEY
OPP. POST OFFICE
PERTH, ONT


Other than the name of the photographer there is no identification on this photo. However I only know of one set of twins in the family so I believe this is a picture of my grandmother, Mary Leith Kelly and her brother Alexander Craig "Sandy" Kelly who were born 6 June 1900 in Calabogie, Renfrew, Ontario, Canada to James Kelly and Isabella White.

James & Isabella were married 15 July 1891, Ottawa, Carleton County, Ontario. James was from Northern New York, Isabella from Dahousie, Lanark County, Ontario. Perth, Ontario is located a bit southwest of Ottawa, southeast of Calabogie, fairly close to Dalhousie and is the Lanark County seat. Photographer, F.W. Kelsey is listed in the 1898-1899 Perth Ontario Directory.

I don't really have any baby photos of ancestors... unless they're hiding away somewhere.

Such an interesting picture, Apple. Not only a pair of cute babies, but also the, um, stuff. Surely this photo was taken at their home rather than in a studio. Nice to see the baby gear of their time.
