Bereik en inhoud

The fonds consists of Margaret McFarlane’s red leather cover autograph album 1890-1892, inscribed “Miss Margeurite McFarlane”, and includes various quotes, sayings and signatures by Margaret’s family, friends and acquaintances. The album shows a variety of styles of handwriting and calligraphy, as well as Margaret’s travels throughout northern and central Ontario, including Lion’s Head, Singhampton, Pinkerton, Walkerton, Blyth, Clinton and Fairview.
The back cover of the album is annotated ‘Jessie Armstrong 10 years, 1916’. So it is possible Jessie Armstrong also used the album.
