I am the youngest sister of Evelyn, Ivy & Albert and have lived in Australia since 1956. Evelyn died when she was about ten years old, well before I was born. Although I have seen this photo before it may now be lost to the family in Australia. Seeing it here on the internet made me cry. It really brought it home to me that Evelyn was truly a part of my family even though I didn't know her and how tragic if must have been for my parents to lose her and to live with that loss all their lives. Unfortunately they also lost their second child, baby William (a lot ot Billy's in the family...) and he should have been between Evelyn & Ivy in this photo.
