To whom it may concern

This photograph was taken in 1940-41 at 29 Clanalpine Street Mosman.
The lady, with the small boy, was my mother and the boy my eldest brother Anthony.
In the middle is my aunty, Stella Howson and on her right is my uncle, Charles Field.
The gentleman sitting in the middle was the air raid warden but we do not know his name.
Can anyone assist with the identity of those on the left of this photograph?

Your comment

this photograph has been forwarded to me, Eve Bagnall.
My husband remembers an Ian Bagnall at Mosman Primary in the early 1960s but was not aware of any relativity.

I do not know an Ian Bagnall but am wondering if his brother Tony was the Anglican minister at St Peters Cremorne at some stage?

I will show the photo to some other family members and Clanalpine residents whom I know and see what happens.
Perhaps Donna at Mosman Library might be able to assist.

Was Valda Bagnall, the opera singer part of your family?Again we are not aware of any relativity.
