A family member just sent me a lovely piece of history. This is a photo of my great-grandfather Jules Pynoo and my great-grandmother Zoe Pynoo greeting the Queen of England and the Duke. The picture was taken on the steps of the St. Boniface City Hall in Winnipeg in the early 1950s. Jules was the acting mayor at the time. There is actually a street, as well as a bridge, named after him in Winnipeg. I love how stylish everyone looks in the photo. I wish hats and red lipstick were still in vogue.
