my grandfather from the Limes, Standish
Photo: Sheryl B

A photo from the 1920's as my grandfather Fred Lewis ploughed his farm in Queensland which he leased from the Australian Government after migrating from Wigan-Standish with his Wigan-born wife Daisy Wood following their marriage in 1907. It was miles from anywhere and must have been miserable. Goodness knows why they ever came there. Noone to ask now.
