This etching was created on the return from the Austin's honeymoon.  The newly-wed Phyllis Austin (Kneafcy), a Canadian Opera singer, is shown sleeping in the cabin of the Cunard ship on which they sailed from Canada in 1932. A box of her favourite Laura Secord Candies can be seen on the bedside table.

We are grateful to Portia Birch for assistance.
