A note from Wally

This is a shot of Christiana
Hodge (nee Rowe) which was taken in 1931
With her are her daughter Clarinda, Clarinda's daughter Gladys,
and Gladys' daughter Lois
Clarinda was born in Melbourne on 13th February 1887
As for myself, I well remember visiting the Hodge household when
I was about a five year old
I used to take my life in my hands as I had to cross Hart Street
and Military Road ... only the good die young !!
My mother always knew when I had visited my great-grand-parents
as I came home with a Cornish accent !!
