In the "Howse" biographical file in the St. Catharines Public Library a copy of this image appears with the following note written on the reverse side: "Donated by John Overholt, 17 Thetford Rd., New Malden, Surrey, England."

I doubt the 1895 date attributed to this photo by the Library. An announcement of Howse's death (Standard, August 17, 1910) said he had left St. Catharines 20 years before, or in ca 1890. Also, according to local city directories his shop bore the street number 98 St. Paul only in the 1874, 1875 and 1877 directories the 1881 and 1884 and subsequent directories had it at 91 St. Paul. I would estimate that the photo was taken sometime in the 1870s.

Thank you for letting us know. The record has been updated. AV
