My brother George outside our house in Hawthorn Ave., going to Boys Brigade. Notice the car outside Mcphersons house. What sort is it?

Memories are made of this John. My Mum says she has a photo somewhere of our Brent and your George in their BB uniforms, will see if I can find it. I can see what was our house on this one. Great photo.

I reckon this was taken around 1960.

Love this photo of our George in his BB uniform ready for Jelly Sunday. Think he had been busy all morning polishing his brass belt buckle! Happy Days!
