UPDATED - More Unknowns from old Catudal Photo Album

Here are some more old photos I found in some of the old Catudal photo albums that were passed down to me.
These two were taken about 11 to 13 years apart:

Written on the back of the top photo is "18 Juillet 1938"
Written on the back of the bottom photo is "25 Juillet Pris dons notre court Gil. Alma - Roland - Je ne suis plus la petite Alma --- hai" I'm always asking everyone to take the time to write the names the people in the picture and the date onto the back of their photos. Here is a good example where adding a last name as well would have helped.

No idea about anyone in this picture.

On the back is written "Ceci est le dernier portrait pris de maman le 8 mai 1955"

Another mystery.

Stamped on the back of this photo is "J. A. Légaré Studio Jun 12 1948 Waterloo, Qué."

Thanks to my cousin Laurie Catudal Campbell for helping to identify the people in this picture. She showed this picture to her aunt Margeurite  who was able to identify the lady in this photo as being Lucie-Anne Catudal. I really should have noticed this but was thrown-off because Lucie-Anne had a dark birth mark on the upper side of her mouth on her right side. In this picture as in some others she is using a concealer to cover the mark and she is turning her face so that the mark isn't as visible.

Margeurite's mother, Cecile, was the sister of Lucie-Anne's husband, Camille.

Lucie-Anne married Camille Robidoux in 1924. It was a double wedding with Lucie-Anne's brother Magloire marrying Camille's sister Cecilia (Cecile) Robidoux. Margeurite believes that the man sitting next to Lucie-Anne may be the father of Camille and Cecile and the two men standing behind may be the older man's sons. The one standing behind Lucie-Anne may be her husband Camille. I'll have to go through my grandmother's photo albums to see if I can find a picture of Camille as an older man to confirm my suspicion. A big thank you to Laurie for having taken the time to help try and find out who the people in this picture were!

Please leave a comment if you know any of the people in these pictures or e-mail me at
