I found this rather large, lovely photograph on eBay. It wasn’t cheap, but I couldn’t overlook its historical significance. Not to mention the fact that the man in the top center of the photograph with the large portrait is my great-great-grandfather John Forrest (1842-1920), former president of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The portrait was prepared by the Climo studio in Halifax. The photo of my grandfather is similar to ones we already have, but not identical, so it is a new bit of information about him.

Some of the names are very faded, so I will post them here. There are six rows (roughly horizontal), and I have marked the women with an asterix.
