    Local find - Canadian / British WWI items.
    The souvenir niagara camp piece is made of felt was cut down to fit a picture frame (I have the frame) and the ladies music sheet was also in a frame (I have the frame).
    Both are not dated but appear to be period pieces. Looking for some info and if anybody is interested let me know.

    Thanks !

    The flag appears to be a cut down Pennant that was trimmed to fit into the frame. Either way, it's a nice looking item!

    Camp Niagara is now Fort George, the entire flat areas were covered with tents ect before the Fort was restored.

    Here are a couple of photos of a unit there, you can see the ramparts in the background, This photo is 6 feet 6 inches long, the longest I have ever see, and as it hangs high on my wall, this is the best I can do for photos.
