Photograph of Peter Butti and friend, 1912

This is a sepia toned photograph of Peter Butti with a friend in 1912. 

Peter Butti immigrated to Canada in 1912 to set up a life for himself and his family. In 1917, he was able to bring over his wife (Ida), son (Henry), and daughter (Rosina). When World War II broke out, his son and his daughter-in-law Myra were designated as enemy aliens and they were required to report monthly to the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police).
