Ill health later caused him to cease work and Mr. and Mrs. Weekes moved to Smiths Falls.

c. 1903 - Roberta, Elizabeth and Robert Ready

c. 1918. Roy Weekes and his 1915? Model T Ford car. He was born in
1898 and appears to be about 20 years old in the picture,
giving the picture a possible date of about 1918 - 20. Roy may
have recently purchased the Model T as its 2nd owner, an
occasion suggesting a picture pose for posterity. His brother
Norman may have been the photographer, as he owned a
Kodak camera in those early years. The season, may have
been early Spring as he is wearing a top coat, the trees have
no leaves and the car wheels are muddy because of recently
thawed gravel roads. The location may be the roadside in front
of the family farm.

c. 1930. Roberta Doreen Ready (Weekes) with Merrill and
Elsie Jamieson (Weekes)
