Front Row Left to Right – Greville Booth & Lindsay Minier
I lived several doors up from Lindsay in Rangers Ave, but was also several years younger. Lindsay had a sister called Shirley and his father was Peter, a hairdresser working at times in the old barber shop on Military Road opposite Marist Brothers school. Every six weeks or so, I and all other children (boys and girls) would be taken down to Lindsay’s and have our haircut in the backyard while listening to the horse races on the radio. I think we paid sixpence for the haircut. I am also pretty sure Lindsay’s surname was spelt “Menier”.
You do look a right motley crew and all so slim, I wonder if you still are that?
I think most of the Cremorne end of Rangers Avenue had their hair cut by Peter, even I in a very fashionable “German helmet” style. I had morning tea with Mavis ( Mr Min’s wife) some ten or so years ago and we had a great time reminiscing, unfortunately my Christmas card was returned year before last.
