    Anyone recognize this artist or location or anything about it? I picked up this lovely folk art painting that I think is gouache / watercolor circa 1915-20 or so. It is a winter snow scene of an overpass of a stream and a horse pulling a driver. Location might be around Toronto Canada area because on the back of the frame is label: "Fred L Curry, Picture Framing. 760 Yonge St, Toronto" Also, on backside of art board, is: " Faced with Genuine Hand-Made Whatman - 'PERFECT' quality extra hard sized. The Registered Trademark is your guarantee". Whatman Drawing Board. Trade supplied by the sole distributors in the USA. H. Reeve Angel & CO. INC., New York City. Obtainable in Five Surfaces: -HP (HOT PRESSED) for Pen and ink, CP (COLD-PRESSED) and R (ROUGH) for WaterColor; also Special Surfaces Nos. 1 and 2 for Wash Drawings" . Any Canadians recognize something?
