At home in Joliette

Janie remained with her sister Claire. By February 1916 she had been in Joliette for at least six months, and planned to remain there as long as Claire needed her, or as long as Joliette was the place Percy would go on leave.

We know she was in Joliette in the summer of 1915, because George T.’s mother sent Janie a postcard on August 16th: “Just to let you know I am here in Fton. Hope you are well and having a good time good night with love from Mrs Boone.”

Brunswick Street Fredericton 1915It showed a view of Brunswick Street looking east, the unpaved road lined with Fredericton’s signature elms. One of a series of views of Fredericton, this is one example of the work of Raphael Tuck & Sons, “Art Publishers to their Majesties the King & Queen,” who opened a shop in London in 1866, and continued well into the twentieth century, despite its building being destroyed by bombs in 1940, before merging with another printing company in 1982.

This card is identified as printed in Germany, but “Published by The Boston 5 and 10 cent Department Store, Fredericton, NB.”
