It is wintertime in 1891 says Mary, somewhere up in Canada says Doris. Andrew is the man's name and his dog is named Red.
Andrew is wearing skis states Luella and there is snow on the ground. We think he is working on a hill at a ski lodge.
The other man in the picture is bending over to look for something that he dropped, maybe his ring or glove or money. The dog sees something, he is anxious to get going. He is looking to go home says Mary.
Andrew will be going home soon to have hot vegetable beef soup and warm fresh bread that his mom has baked for him.
