|The theme photo for this week's Sepia Saturday
|Naomi Wyllie nee Milgate
They moved to Melbourne and for a number of years lived in a house called 'Lilydare' in Burwood. There's a nameplate in the photo but it isn't quite clear enough for me to read it so I'm not sure if it's that house.
It looks like Naomi has been called out to have her photo taken and she hasn't even removed her apron, just like the lady in our theme photo.
Naomi died in 1945 at the age of 83.
|Mabel Lydia Larkin nee Quick
This photo is of Mabel Lydia standing in the door of their home. There was almost no water so gardens and lawns were almost impossible. Heat, drought, mice plagues, very cold winter nights, dust storms, lack of water, unreliable crop harvests - what a shock for an English lass!
