This item is a photograph of the Jewish community of Kirkland Lake assembled for the bar mitzvah of Joe Atkins, now a chartered accountant in Toronto. The photograph depicts that group seated at several banquet tables in the Legion Hall.
Typed notes on the back continue: "Rare view of Hyman with his hat off, the grandfather, standing next to Harry. The only one missing is the photographer - Eddie Duke - and to this day I wish I could have been included. Picture taken in the Legion Hall which was koshered for the occasion.".
Acquired in 1976.
Photo by Duke Studio.
