This photograph portrays Henry Martyn Belcher in the company of two friends.

Henry Martyn Belcher (1856-1923) was the son-in-law of William Notman, founder of the William Notman photographic studio in Montreal. In 1884, he married Jessie Sloane Notman (1859-1942), a daughter of William, at St. Martin's Anglican Church in Montreal. Reverend Samuel Belcher, the father of the groom, celebrated the marriage.

Henry and Jessie had seven children: Frederick Gordon (1885-1970); Alice Dorothy (1887-1946); Henry Lawrence (1889-1946); Charles Stuart (1891-1917); Edith Constance (1893-1971); Leslie Kenneth (1895-1918); and William Vincent (1901-1957). Henry Martyn passed away in 1923, almost two decades before the death of his wife in 1942.
