Jessie Bilodeau?

Jessie Bilodeau?

This could be Jessie Bilodeau (1861-1933?) and was probably taken on the front steps of the Studio Gagnon Photographe house in Saint Georges de Beauce, Quebec.
We're not sure who the child is.

This seems to be a postcard. According to "Camera Clues" by Joe Nickell, postcards from before 1907 had undivided backs while ones 1907 and later had backs divided for the address and message. I'm not sure if this also applies to Canada, but it might be worth checking out. The style of the boy's clothing seems later than 1907, though. "Everyday Fashions 1909-1920, As Pictured in Sears Catalogs" is a good resource for this period. There is another book in this series for the 1920s. These should help you date the photo by the boy's clothing.

Thanks

Thank you for your responce. We think it's likely around 1930 because of other photos of Jessie Bilodeau - it looks a little like her. She is likely my dads'(Henri Roy) mothers'(Cecile Gagnon) mom.
