Historical information

From a box of photographs in Nancy U'REN's papers used during research for her thesis, The Early Growth and Development of Sandridge (1976) and/or her book with Noel TURNBULL, A History of Port Melbourne (1983).

Jack GOULD probably created this from a version of the photograph held by the Australian War Museum. This version is cropped a bit tighter than the version held at the Australian War Museum (AWM 300060) and does not include the caption.
