      Thanks for the information. What else can you tell us about the photo and the family. Do you know any of the other people? Why is Bertha standing behind him rather than sitting next to him? Who is the young child on his knee?

    Hello, I am John Robert Curnow’s wife Mirella.
    I believe this is John’s cousin’s great grand dad.
