c. 1950

I have found an old black and white photo taken about 1950. There were no trees in the street, but the garage had been built, so we had a car by then.

See my story – Memories of 59 Cowles Road.

Originally, my family lived in number 72 Cowles Road, until my parents eventually purchased number 70 which was a semi, situated diagonally across from your house. Our home was two down from the small lane leading to the catholic school Basket ball courts. My Father managed Mosman Meat Works in the centre of Mosman Junction, directly across from the Mosman Primary School. I attended Mosman Kindergarden, Primary and finally High School. On leaving school I attended the National Art School in Darlinghurst, gaining my diploma in fine arts and worked for a number of major company’s in their creative departments. I ultimately established my own advertising Agency, under the name of Adroit Advertising which was situated in modern premises at the corner of Military Road and Belmont Road, Cremorne, (across the road from Mojo Advertising). After 31 years running my own business I retired at 70 and am now living on the Central Coast.

Hi Bruce, recall you & family very well, lived across the road to our number 73. We trust you are OK up the coast. Can still see your Dad, complete with butcher’s apron & other gear, heading over to Short St on his way to Mosman Junct. Often wonder too how the remainder of your neighbours (Chiddy family) got through life after the tragic passing of Mr C (work accident). Best wishes, LM
