Sepia Saturday 408: 3rd March 2018

This week's Sepia Saturday prompt photo is a Caddy Master and his caddies at the Shaughnessy Golf Club and is from the Flickr Commons stream of the Vancouver Public Library Historical Photograph Collection.

When I "googled" golf AND caddy on Trove one of the photos that came up was this one.

Isn't it a beauty?

I would love to post the photos here on my blog but even though the copyright status indicates that it is out of copyright, under the terms of use it states that restrictions on publication apply.  Reading the Fairfax site it suggests that if I want to use the photos on social media (not advertising), Fairfax would charge $157 per photo to do so.  Sigh.

I just love the photo of Mrs Triglone and her caddy for so many reasons.  I love that she and the caddy are essentially the same height.  I love the caddy's grin.  

I wanted to find out some more about Mrs Triglone.  

I discovered from this article that she was originally Miss Duret.

She married Arthur Harcourt Triglone in Young on 21 February 1920.

I discovered that she was born in New Zealand and that her father was a real estate agent and her mother a writer and artist.

But I think it is the photos that tell us the most about Mrs Triglone.  

Here are some more links for your enjoyment:

Mrs Triglone died 12th December 1985 at the age of 98 according to a death notice recorded in the Ryerson index here.
