Photograph of Peter and Ida Butti, Nordegg, AB, May 1925

Black and white photograph of Peter and Ida Butti, Nordegg, AB in May of 1925.

The couple is standing outside of a wooden house.  Ida is wearing a long black coat with large buttons and a long dress. Her accessories include black shoes and a brimmed hat.  Peter is wearing a black three piece suit with black shoes and a newspaper boy cap. Both are squinting and looking straight at the camera. There is a lot of snow on the ground.

Peter came to Canada in 1912 to work as an electrical engineer.  Once established, he brought over Ida and their two children.  During WWII, their son Henry and daughter-in-law Myra were designated as enemy aliens and ordered to report to the RCMP.
