Located at the western-most tip of the Island of Montreal, Senneville and the neighbouring village of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue were home to several of Gwendolen Marjorie Howard's friends and their families. These two villages, which were easily accessible from Montreal by train, were the weekend and vacation retreats of some of Montreal's wealthiest and most influential families, several of whom Marjorie knew well. Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue was the home of her friend Jean Grant, while both the Clouston and Angus families lived in Senneville at their respective estates.

Referred to interchangeably in many of the photographs, these two villages were attractive destinations for boating, situated at the confluence of the St Lawrence and Ottawa rivers at Lake of Two Mountains. Many of the collection's photographs show Marjorie and her friends either boating off Senneville, or attending regattas just above the Sainte-Anne's lock.
