My Father, Bill Hegarty, along with the Mott sisters, Myrtle, Ida and Alice who married Bill, were all employed by Kitchen & Sons.

This picture was taken at one of Kitchen’s annual outings, a picnic at Frankston.

Here Bill is teamed with my Auntie Myrtle, dressed in their Sunday best, competing in a thread the needle race.

The caption reads:

“In this delicate operation the race is neither to the swift nor to the strong.”
