Why I get all excited with old photos?

And why do I feel compelled to write about them?

I wish I knew…

I am not related to these people. Well maybe just a little with the little girl in front of her mother. I had to know who this family was, when and where that photo was taken.

Today is Halloween Day. The man holding her little girl Mabel was born on October 31st, 1877. His wife Nellie Leggett would die in 1921 in Alberta. Thomas Welburn would not remarry and would raise his family alone.
