The photograph featured at the top of the page is an enhanced and colourized version of one taken by a Toronto Globe photographer in 1930. It was for an article honouring prize winners to be recognized at Malvern Collegiate’s commencement ceremonies that year.

The colourizing software I have used seems to assume that everyone has brown eyes. Apologies to Isabel’s descendants if her eyes were, in fact, blue.

The 9 x 11 cm black and white glass negative now resides in the City of Toronto Archives.

Here is the article in which the photo appeared. Isabel is tagged with number nine (and her name is misspelled as “Isobel”).
