At Kitsilano Beach

  • PHILIP-3-1986-1045
  • Item
  • [before 1926]
  • Part of Philip Fonds

Three children and two adults at Kitsilano Beach. Inscription on verso : "Rhi Philip with glasses / Margaret Partridge / first school teacher at Alta Lake / Left front Anne Philip / other girl & Anne's brother Maison Philip / Kitsilano Beach"

A second view taken at the same time is included in the file 'Family Photographs etc. in 1986_001_071; this view has John Philip in the shot, which places the photo earlier than 1926 when he died. Because of this date, it's unlikely that Margaret Partridge was included, because she was a child at that time. The adult in bathing costume may be [Myrtle Philip?].
