Popular Halifax Couple Married Half Century

Capt. and Mrs. J. G. Maskell

With half a century of happily married life behind them, and keenly anticipating many more years together, Capt. J. G. Maskell and Mrs. Maskell, of 63 Willow Street, recently celebrated their golden wedding. The occasion was on for congratulatory messages from their many Halifax friends and others from distant points, and particularly from their children, five of whom are residing away from home.

Thirty Years In Labrador trade

Captain Maskell is well known in Halifax, particularly in marine circles, and for 30 years was engaged in the Labrador trade, being connected with the late J. T. Thompson in that business. Both Captain and Mrs. Maskell are valued members of the West End Baptist Church, in which congregation the former holds office as Deacon. They are natives of Jeddore, Halifax County.

There are six children living, namely, Viola, wife of Rev. A. W. Warren, of the Calvary Baptist Church, Tarrytown, Conn.; Guy G., residing in Springfield, Mass.; Frank H. in Brooklyn, N. Y.; Eva, wife of E. J. Steer, Waterbury, Conn.; Muriel P., teacher in Bloomfield School, Halifax and John A. student at Gordon College, Boston.

Poem In Their Honor

In connection with the celebration of Capt. and Mrs. Maskell’s Golden Wedding, their son-in-law, Rev. A. W. Warren, wrote the following poem in their honor:

Fifty Wedded Years

(Congratulations to Mother and Father Maskell)

On a Christmas Eve in old Jeddore

‘Neath the fir-tree’s fragrant bough,

A youth and a maiden joined their hearts

In the sacred marriage vow.

A-down the years they have kept in step

And borne their burdens together;

They have done their work, they have sung their song,

Despite the times or the weather.

And the years have passed as all years may pass

In the steady march of time,

Without the loss of the zest of life,

Or the vision that is sublime.

And the friends of the years renew with you

The friendships that made life dear;

And children, and children’s children, too,

Send greetings from far and near.

To say to you from a heart of love

What the heart of love should say,

That we honor you and wish you well

On your Golden Wedding Day.

We pray that on through the years to come,

As you travel toward the West,

The God whom we trust may guide your feet

in the way that is ever the best.

And when you go forth from this earthly home

To the Heavenly otherwhere,

May the vow you took on the day you wed

Be renewed in the home over there.

Vintage XXL Mens Linen Blend Suit Jacket Dark Blue with Yellow Stripe

Vintage XXL Mens Linen Blend Suit Jacket Dark Blue with Yellow Stripe

View on eBay here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/322213530012?

Wonderful 3 Button Linen and Cotton Blend Blue Suit Jacket with Yellow and White Stripes. This would make a useful addition to a theatre or film wardrobe or props department. It is vintage 1980s or 1990s but has an older style and feel to it.
Guy Laroche / Tommaso Rossi.
Jacket measures 25 inches across the front chest from armpit to armpit. Inside arm seam is 16.5 inches long and the outside arm from shoulder to cuff is 25 inches. The back measures 32.5 inches long down the middle.
I also have a full suit very similar to this jacket available on ebay here : http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Mens-XXL-Size-50-Linen-Cotton-Suit-Brown-Stripe-Euro-Size-58R-/322213487757? Please send me a message if you are interested in combining shipping costs.
I believe the sizing in the label is European so please keep that in mind.
