Harry Minter and family in England. The picture is a postcard and is dated 1905 and is therefore not long before the family emigrated to Canada. Although a bit difficult to decipher, the information on the back of the card reads "Gt. Bealings, Woodbridge, Suffolk. Wishing you all a Happy X'mas and "bright" New Year. H & M Minter 1905". The card is addressed to Mrs. Hawkins, 9 Ferndale Rd, Waterloo, Liverpool.

This photo is probably circa 1910: Harry Thomas Minter, his wife Margaret (Ferguson), Dorothy, Ella, Harry and Mildred.

Harry's wife Margaret (nee Ferguson) who was born in Scotland in 1865 and died in Ontario in 1950
