Marriage of Lydia Jane Boyd [1881- 1976] (Daughter of Joseph Boyd and Elizabeth Christie Boyd) and Norman E. Carruthers [1872 - 20 Jan 1931]. The wedding took place in Lacombe, Alberta July 27, 1910.

Back row: Bertha Morrison nee Boyd ( sister of the bride), Minnie Boyd nee Robb and Albert James Boyd [10 Apr 1878 - 10 Jan 1939] (brother of the bride).

In front of Bertha Mrs. Thibadau and beside her partly obscured in Lizzie Boyd nee Christie (in black hat) [04 May 1853 - 14 Mar 1925] (Daughter of William John Christie and Margaret Jane Swail)

Front row: Mae Black holding baby Frances. Next to her is William Norman Morrison who is married to Bertha nee Boyd. Next to him is Alma Boyd [1890 - 1983], sister of the bride. Next to her is the groom Norman E. Carruthers and his bride Lydia Jane Boyd. Next to Lydia is Bessie Lord a relative of Norman Morrison who was visiting from P.E. I.) Next to Bessie is Stafford Joseph David Boyd [1886 - 08 Nov 1967] (brother of the bride).

Ryerson Christie is in the photo and I think he is beside Stafford and partly hidden behind Bessie. One of the two men on the right is Mr. P. H. Thibadeau. Am missing the identity of one of these two men.

The young boy in front is Donald Morrison, first son of Norman and Bertha. Donald was born in 1905 and passed away on Valentine's Day, 1915
