This week, our mystery object is a little different to the norm. As I am sure you can all see, this is a vintage photo, probably from the Edwardian period, but the mystery has nothing to do with what the item is, but who the item features. This photo, and another three framed similarly were donated to the Lions Club Shop in Berowra, who contacted us and offered the photos to the Berowra Living History team. We do not know who the photos feature, or even whether they are connected to Berowra, and appeal to our community to solve our little mystery.
Regardless of whether these photos are connected to Berowra on a more intimate level, they reveal what people would have been wearing and how posed photographs would have been taken, and they are a wonderful donation to our collection.
If you know anything about this photo (others will be showcased in later posts), or even if they bring back memories of similar photos in your own story, please leave us a comment with your thoughts!
