Studio portrait of sisters Antonina, Armida and Nellie Cavell, 1934 - en anglais seulement

Black and white studio portrait of Nellie Cavell (née Pitton) and her younger sisters. From left to right the sisters are: Antonina Pitton, Armida Pitton and Nellie Pitton. The photograph was taken in 1934, during the same period in which Nellie began working as a secretary for the Italian Consulate in Vancouver, BC. It is due to her work at the Consulate that Nellie was declared an enemy alien by the Canadian government during World War II. She was required to report monthly to the local authorities. No one else in her family was affected by the enemy alien designation.
