Parents: William Halliday and Anna Armstrong

father was born in England
mother was born in England or Scotland

Two daughters Grace A and Anna RUTH

The photo was taken in circa 1925:
This was found in Jacque Schwenke's Grandmother Sanders' picture box. She doesn't know anything about her, except what is written on the picture back. The name, Anna Halliday, is written on the back of the photo. She was dressed as bridesmaid for her sister's wedding. The picture was taken by Ballaun & Prusinski, 1150 Chene St., 402 E. Canfield Ave. Detroit, Michigan.

**note**After studying the time frame and facial features--especially the eyes, neck and mouth, I think this photo is actually a photo of Anna's Daughter. I better fits the age of the person in the photo. Maybe Jacque's grandmother put Anna Halliday's name on the back because it was one of Anna's daughters (Grace or Anna Ruth) and she could not remember her daughter's name. (She looks like a young Anna Ruth to me.)

I am so happy I found this photo!!! Thanks Rene for adding it to this memorial--I forgot to do that.
