    Custodial history

    Lillian Pearse (ca. 1879-1971) and Francis Dean Kerr (1872-1963) were married 26 August 1919 at St. John's Anglican Church in Peterborough, Ontario. Lillian was raised in a house located at 299 Dublin St., Peterborough, and continued to live there for the remainder of her life with her husband. The Kerrs and the Hills were family friends and Ian Fleming recalls the photograph being in the house until the late 1960s or early 1970s; he received it from his parents who were either given the photograph by Lillian Kerr or received it through her will. The Dublin St. house was purchased by Trent University in the 1960s; it became known as "Kerr House" and is part of Traill College.
