Percy Guest second from left, son Colin next to him and then Eva. Judging Colin's age at about 20 puts the
time at about 1939, making Eva about 44. The other women are recognisable as Pattersons and the photo is probably taken on the front veranda of one of the Russell St houses near the old Show Grounds at Evandale.

"Taken in the corner sheep yards end of old stable. Redburns house in distance.
Notice white spot on Blackies head. "  Not sure of the male but other lady is
most likely Corrie Patterson.

Corrie(?) Patterson, Eva and unidentified (Could be Anny Vaux). 
Taken at Brookside, farm on Nile Road, about 1 km south of Evandale. c 1960.
Not sure who is peering through the window.
