My Mother (Redux)

I travelled to Montreal last week to view a collection of “Billy” Stewart memorabilia in the Concordia University Vanier Library. One of the files was labelled “E.V. Stewart Photographs [1940s]”. My hope was that there might be a photo of my mother as a young woman in that file. (For those that are interested, the box number is HA3156 – P195/1B)

Turns out that specific file had two photos, just of my step-father, both marked on the back as Major E.V. Stewart. The other file of interest was one which featured photos of Anne Stewart’s marriage to Bertrand Potvin, dated 29 Aug 1949. My mother was not included in that wedding party, probably because she was three month’s pregnant with me, and she didn’t want to embarrass herself or her husband, since I wasn’t his child.

Anyway, here’s one of the photos which I had previously discovered on ancestry.ca:

The Stewarts in 1949

I got a photocopy of the other picture of the expanded wedding party including guests, but I’m not allowed to publish it. Vaughan is the second from the left in the back row.
