As a schoolteacher in Prince Edward Island, Montgomery continued to write. Three years teaching at schools in Bideford, Belmont, and Bedeque found Maud producing stories and verse. Some of her works were published in newspapers and magazines. For a year, between 1901, when this photograph was taken, and 1902, Montgomery lived in Halifax, Nova Scotia, working as a writer and proofreader for the Halifax Daily Echo.
