Scope and Content
Accession consists of a photograph of Ethel and Herschel Dand, formerly of Montreal and Toronto. A note written by the donor and accompanying the photograph states that the photo is of Ethel Mendelson and her husband, however the back of the photograph identifies the couple as Ethel and Herschel Dand and Ethel as the sister of Mendel who married Rishe. It is unclear which is the correct surname for the couple.
