Photograph of Ida Butti with children, Henry and Rosina, and unknown lady
This is a black and white photograph of Ida Butti with her children, Henry and Rosina, and an unknown lady identified as "Faien."
Ida and Faien are standing while the two children are hanging off what appears to be ceiling wooden beams. Ida is wearing a white long sleeve shirt with a light coloured patterned long skirt. Faien is wearing a similar outfit: a black long sleeve shirt with a patterned skirt. Both ladies have their hands clasped in front of them. Henry is wearing a white long sleeve shirt with a dark coloured pants. Rosina is wearing a white dress and her hair is styled with a white ribbon. The backdrop suggests that they are in a wooden house or a barn.
In 1917, Ida and her children joined Peter Butti in Canada. When World War II broke out, Henry and his wife, Myra, were designated as enemy aliens and they were required to report monthly to the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police).
