Dear Editor:

In the Historical Lens photo of the December 16th edition, the young man holding the gun is my father, Gilbert Griffiths Taynton, not William Sinclair Taynton.

These two men were cousins and in later years lived beside each other on property in Tayntons Bay.

My fathers parents were William Walter Taynton and Edith Annie Taynton.

The picture (the original of which I have in my files) was taken December 26th, 1907, at Windermere, at which time my father was seven years old. I am not aware exactly where in Windermere, but they obviously didnt have a lot of snow then.

The pea jacket with the long scarf and the leather gaiters are interesting clothing. Dogs were always part of the family.

Avy Nicholson, Invermere
