A couple of years ago I wrote a biographical post about designer Louise Barnes Gallagher. At the time, I was only able to find a tiny head shot of Louise from a newspaper which was poor quality and quite fuzzy. Last week, I was contacted by the designer's granddaughter Mary-Louise and she was kind enough to send me the two photos of her grandmother you see here today. The one above probably dates to the 1920s.
After reading seven Louise Penny mysteries set in the province of Quebec, it seemed the right time to look for the tiny village of Three Pines, where murder, as one character says, is a cottage industry.
