The October 29 1929 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contained these photographs of a couple celebrating their golden wedding anniversary:
As usual with entries such as this, I indulged my morbid curiosity and looked in the Toronto city directories to see how many more wedding anniversaries they got to celebrate. The record is a bit muddy, as Henry B. Putnam isn’t listed in the 1930 directory but Mrs. H. P. Putnam is listed at 370 Runnymede Road; in the 1931 directory, Henry P. Putnam is now at this address, and the 1932 directory lists Henry B. Putnam there.
The Putnams appear to have moved house a lot, so I’m not sure if this is the right one, but there is a Henry B. Putnam at an address in Swansea in the 1937 directory, and Julia B. Putnam is listed as his widow in the 1938 and 1939 directories at that location. In the 1940 directory, there is a Mrs. Julia Putnam listed at a different location; I didn’t trace her after that.
