This week, Berowra Living History presents another mystery to our community. We have some wonderful pioneers in the Berowra area, one of whom is Ada Richards – the Matriarch of our ‘The Mother, Father And Matriarch’ exhibition. Ada was a beautiful woman, and accomplished in many areas, including music. We know she is featured in the image above, an image of The Gibson Mandolin Orchestra. The question is, which of these striking women is Ada?
Compare the members of the orchestra above to these two known images of Ada – which of the musicians do you believe she is?
