Description: A full colour print of fall leaves. The image is 17.5 x 12 cm printed on coated paper board. The illustration is an impressionistic depiction of a small bouquet of autumn foliage and nuts. The leaves are green, gold, brown, red, purple, and orange, dispersed throughout the image, as well as some acorns. There is a blue-green shadow effect to the lower and right sides of the full colour bouquet. History: According to Barbara, this art card was part of a scrapbook that used to exist at Benares. Items donated by Barbara Sayers Larson. Barbara Larson is the daughter of Annie Harris (1882-1986) and Beverly Sayers (1883-1976) and granddaughter of Arthur (1843-1932) and Mary (1859-1954) Harris. Barbara was born January 27, 1920 and was the youngest of three children. Barbara and her siblings, Geoffrey Sayers (1907-1997) and Dora Sayers Caro (1915-2004) donated Benares to the Ontario Heritage Foundation in 1968 after inheriting it from their aunt, Naomi Harris (1883-1968). Many of the items donated by Barbara originally belonged to her mother or Aunt Naomi and came from Benares. Barbara lived in a log cabin originally given to her mother by her grandparents at 1723 Birchwood Drive. She still maintains a close tie with Benares and is now living in Kelowna, British Columbia, with her daughter.
