This is not very clear as it is scanned through glass in a frame. The photo shows the Messias house in Black River in 1904 with the McCaulay children and one cousin with Auntie Maud - all wearing black armbands as they were in mourning for the loss of their parents. The house looks virtually the same today as seen in the lower photo - it is now a lawyer's office.
