This photograph portrays Naomi Daintry Notman with her Aunt Phyllis (Pyke?), thought to be her mother's sister.

Naomi Daintry Notman (1899-1993) was a granddaughter of William Notman, founder of the William Notman photographic studio in Montreal. She was the first-born child of Charles Frederick Notman (1870-1955), a son of William, and Alice Hudson Pyke (1875-1959). Naomi had one brother, James Geoffrey Notman (1901-1974).

In 1925, Naomi Daintry married Robert Muir Miller who would be the father of her daughter, Barbara Daintry (1927- ), and son, Robin Notman Miller (1929-2002). She was later remarried to John Archibald Campbell Colvil with whom she would have four children: Helen Patricia; Elizabeth Letitia; Molly Louise; and John. Naomi Daintry died in 1993 at age 94.
