This week's Sepia Saturday prompt photo is a Caddy Master and his caddies at the Shaughnessy Golf Club and is from the Flickr Commons stream of the Vancouver Public Library Historical Photograph Collection.
When I "googled" golf AND caddy on Trove one of the photos that came up was this one.
Isn't it a beauty?
I just love the photo of Mrs Triglone and her caddy for so many reasons. I love that she and the caddy are essentially the same height. I love the caddy's grin.
I wanted to find out some more about Mrs Triglone.
I discovered from this article that she was originally Miss Duret.

But I think it is the photos that tell us the most about Mrs Triglone.
Here are some more links for your enjoyment:
