This happy group of friends and family had just got inside the old showgrounds when a street photographer lined them up for this reminder of their Easter outing.

From the left we have long time Berowra resident Jim Hatfield, then Margot Hughes, friend of Thea, next is Peg Thompson and then Thea who moved to Berowra in 1947, Peg’s brother, George Thompson, and on his right their older brother, Ray completes the youthful group.

The Thompson family had moved to Berowra during the depression. Thea and George were later to marry and raise their family in Berowra.

Note the dress code of the 40s.

Do you recognize any of the buildings in this long held image?

How are you spending the Easter holidays, 2015?
