- Media Type
- Item Type
- Black and white photographs of Lowrey's home in Queenston. A substantial stone house with double verandah was known as the "family residence". Charles Matthew Lowrey bought the house in 1890s to accommodate his family when he moved to Queenston. It was inherited after M. Charles Lowrey's death in 1931 by his daughter Luella Clifford who lived there with her family.
The first photograph was made into postcard and mailed to Luella Lowrey in Queenston; there is a postmark with the date "July 16, 1909". The remaining pictures were probably taken around 1910.

- On some photographs the house is decorated with British flags so there is also possibility of year 1919 - as Prince Edward, Prince of Wales (future Edward VIII and Duke of Windsor) was on royal tour of Canada in 1919, and was in the area visiting Niagara Falls (in October 1919).
