"Although the photograph has the date 1894 inscribed on it, Tyrrell has placed it in the 1893 album with other photographs of the Lofthouse family and the Churchill area. It could not have been taken in 1894 as Marjorie was away from home in England during the fall of 1894 when J.B. Tyrrell stayed with the Lofthouse family on his return from the 1894 expedtion."
