Historical information

Photographer Bill McAuley was with the Valley Voice newspaper 1978-1979 when he took this image of local identy and school lollypop supervisor, Jock Read on his horse Lofty. According to Jock's daughter, Sue Johnson, Jock had acquired Lofty only about one year before this photo was taken. Lofty was a dapple grey horse that was a familiar sight at the school crossing and various ANZAC Day and Eltham Fesival parades throughout the 1980s and 1990s.
