This is my gran Mary Margaret at 17. I looked exactly like her when I was 21! The last time I ever saw her she was in a care home. An old man a few doors down wandered in, and she told him if he wandered in one more time, she would put turpentine in his milk. She was a riot. The photos I’ve attached are all of Mary Hardy, dating from the late 20's to the 90's.
I barely knew her, only having met her a few times (I'm from and grew up in Alberta, but my dad is from NS). What I do know is that she was a character, my fav advice she gave once was that the best blueberries to pick were the ones by the graveyard, because they were well fed (lol) and no one else would pick those ones, so they were plentiful.
