This card announces the death of Alice Richenda Notman (1863-1881), the fourth child of William Notman, founder of the William Notman photographic studio in Montreal, and Alice Merry Woodwark (1832-1906).

Alice had six siblings: Frances Elizabeth (1855-1867); William McFarlane (1857-1913); Jessie Sloane (1859-1942); Emily Mary (1865-1946); George Richard Woodwark (1868-1921); and Charles Frederick (1870-1955).

At age 17, Alice succumbed to typhoid fever. She was the second daughter of the family to die, after Frances Elizabeth.
