These photos have been kindly shared with us by the Brown family.
Incidentally, Brenda and Molly 'Two of the young ladies below' have reunited after 50 years, having made contact again via our forums. Very Happy

Hi
I am pretty sure I know Brenda and he r siste rMargaret. I was 12 years old and at the Blgownie Hosel from 8th January 1957 until Deember, when my father found a job at Bell Bay in Tasmania. Brenda and Margaret had a horse. I rode hat horse a few feet bare backed. I had never been on a horse in my entire life. Since 1958 I have lived in Tasmania and I love it here. We came over from England on the Orontes. Does any of this sound fanmiliar. My siblings were Betty 15 dec, , Anne, Eddy, Goerge dec , Dawn, dec Myself aged 12.
