Two photos that tell their own story.
"1909::Children Playing With a Toy Canoe at Haida Gwaii, British Columbia"
Photos: Library and Archives Canada (3613504/3613505)
Photographer: Unknown (update pending)
The first photo shows two young boys pulling a toy canoe along the water by a string. The second photo shows the little girl holding the toy canoe after one of her playmates crawled into the big boy's boat. These two photos tell their own little story, but the reader might find a well-read novel on the little girl's face. Perhaps she's upset about being asked to remain on shore. Or maybe she's anxious about crawling into the big boat with her playmate who is leaving her behind. Whatever her predicament, the little toy boat story is left for the viewer to decide.
