Surprise photo

Lately I've been intrigued by the story of Uncle George Keymer and his fiancé Frances (Fanny) Harkin. No one in the family seems to know much about their relationship except that they were engaged to be married. Finding a photo of the couple together was an exciting find. It was great to put a face to her name! 

My mother has been hunting through old family photos and came across another picture of George and Fanny! This picture was taken with my great grandparents, James & Louie Archibald, at their farmhouse in Helensville. The picture was either taken in 1915 or 1916. 

James and Louie Archibald are at the foot of the stairs, while Louie's brother, George Keymer, stands at the top of the stairs with his fiancée, Fanny Harkin. Unknown photographer.
