The Thompson album has items in it collected over a period of 52 years (1830-1882), possibly by the same person. [Jim Burant, National Archives of Canada, to R. H. Whitehead, personal communication, 7 January 1982.] This particular image may be based on the frontispiece of the book, Little Grace, or Scenes in Nova Scotia, by a Miss Grove. [Halifax, C. MacKenzie & Co., 1846. Thanks to Scott Robson for bringing this to our attention and John Grove for providing us with the correct author name (Miss Grove) .]
