Photography in generations past was a very deliberate, expensive and intense hobby. Special equipment, such as chemicals, film, lighting and the camera itself, was needed. Photographers often had to develop their own photos, which meant they had to have a dark room. In this photo, the people were dressed for the occasion, and a rocking chair was taken outside and placed in front of the leafy hedge that provided a good backdrop. But who are these people? Sisters? Grandmothers with their grandchildren? Can you help identify this photo from circa the 1930s taken in Herbert, Sask.?
