David Gordon Collection. Information kindly provided by descendant Alyson Crawford: The photo is of Prudence (nee Anderson) Hooks, wife of the original Robert Hooks; and the mother of Elizabeth (Hooks) Page. The notation on original photo was obviously written by either AR Page, John Page or Beth (Page) Lee. (grandchildren of Lizzie Hooks/Page.) Poor Prudence met a very sad end. According to the Courier 23.12.1893 she died due to burns, 4 days after a bonfire accident.
Copy of an older original, possibly held at Dunolly Museum.

Handwritten on reverse probably by descendants (difficult to decipher): 'Granny Page Hooks, Mother of Granny Page, (Mrs ____ )'
