The image above was taken by professional photographer, Effie Alexakis at Berowra Living History’s first exhibition in 2007 in the Berowra District Hall formerly the first purpose built school in Berowra, the original Berowra Public School.
As with all our exhibitions to follow in 2009, 2012 and 2015 and various other presentations in our local primary schools, to Probus and Cafe Church to name a few, we have always worked as a team with significant contributions, often in the form of story-telling, from our area’s lifetime or long term residents.
In our 2007 image Gordon Limburg is shown looking at botanical specimens with Carol Nolder. Gordon had set up and manned a table display mainly related to our local vegetation. Over the years he contributed much to a number of local community groups and among other things was respected for his expert knowledge of trees and plants. It is fitting that with his passing, his Memorial Service is held at the Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden.
