Photo of the Week – 1947 Bank of Montreal Staff


Around the table at the former Royal Hotel:  Oscar Mallalieu, Patricia Leroux, Pauline Lefebvre, Rhoda McAlear, Raymond Lechasseur, Ms. Y. Desmeules, Mona Martin (soon to be Cameron), George Cameron, Mr. E. Rioux, Lionel Desmeules, Jean Foulds, Leslie Foulds, “myself”, Charles, Verna Lapensee.

Karen Quinn tells us that the photo was taken on the occasion of her parent’s upcoming wedding on September 24th of that year. The staff presented Mona and George Cameron with a wedding gift.

According to Katherine McAlear (Rhoda’s sister-in-law): “there did not have to be a special occasion for the staff to go out after work – just turn the lock in the door and away they went!” Katherine also told us that Rhoda later moved to Ottawa for a job in the Civil Service.

Carley Foulds confirms that Jean was her mom; her dad, Leslie, is still alive and well.

Who can tell us about the others, especially the unnamed”myself?”
