Postcard of Ida Butti with children Rosina and Henry, 1906
This is a black and white postcard of Ida Butti with her children, Rosina and Henry, 1906.
The family is standing outside a brick building with a big window. Ida is wearing a long black overcoat. Her children are standing on a large metal structure. Rosina is wearing a patterned coat with a beret. Henry is wearing a light coloured coat with black pants. He is also wearing a beret. They are all smiling at the camera.
Ida and her children arrived in Canada in 1917 to join Peter Butti who arrived five years prior. When World War II broke out, Henry was designated as an enemy alien and he was required to report monthly to the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police).
