  1. Sean Smith identified “Floyd” as Floyd Hudson, noting that Floyd and Blaise Cameron were neighbours on MacLellan Street. He then went and found Floyd’s daughter Leanne MacLeod, who was at the Games as Chair of the Highland Dancing Committee.
    Leanne came to the Big Tent and pointed out the teen is Floyd’s son Claude Hudson, not Blaise’s son. Her family also has this photo in their album.

  2. Never assume. Leanne Hudson-MacLeod wrote to say that Claude Hudson is definitely the young man in the photo BUT that he is no relation to Floyd Hudson. What then IS his relation to these older men? This makes the story behind the photo even more intriguing.

  3. More corrections. And special thanks to Dawn Hudson-MacDonald for identifying the photographer. She wrote:

    The gentlemen in this picture are Blaise Cameron, Claude Hudson, maybe Vernon Hudson (Claude’s younger brother) and Sam Gero. Dad (Floyd) no doubt was the person who took the photo as he was usually behind the camera not in front of it.

  4. Dawn Hudson-MacDonald responded to our query:

    Dad and Claude worked together at Eastern Auto as did Sam. Later both Dad and Claude joined the staff of The Co-operators Insurance…Dad here in Antigonish and Claude in Pugwash.
