Mystery Semi Solved

ada mystery Last week, Berowra Living History shared the beautiful image above with our online community. We were looking to find out who people identified Ada Richards as being, and this remains something of a mystery. Both N Saunders and Neil Davis identified the striking lady in the top row holding a guitar (seventh from the left, and fifth from the right), the lady who I also suspect to be the illusive Ada. Others have suggested the lady third from the left in the back row, or the lady behind the young man third from the left in the front. However, although we know she is featured, which of the many beautiful women shown above is Ada remains a mystery, with nobody able to positively and conclusively identify her in this particular image. Do you have information to share which will put this mystery to rest? Elissa

Happy New Year

Ada Foster and Band 2

We wish you a Happy New Year with this beautiful image from the collection of Von Jones and Family!

This vintage professional photograph shows the late Max Jones’s grandmother, Ada. She is the tall young woman standing third from the right. Ada was an accomplished musician and an enterprising business woman. Forebear of a number of our pioneer Berowra families, Ada can be called the matriarch of Berowra.

Visit our Museum of Berowra : The Mother, The Father and The Matriarch to see more of the story of Ada and early Berowra.
