|My paternal grandfather, Jim Forsyth (born James Richard Musson). Written on back of photo is "Jim at Mooroopna" so possibly taken mid to late1940s.|
|My maternal grandmother, Daisy Marion Fleming nee Morgan probably taken in the Wangaratta, Myrtleford area of North East Victoria.|
Written on the back of this photo that belonged to my paternal grandfather is "Mac's whare", Mac and Fat, which were nicknames of his brothers, Eric and Ian Musson and a couple of other illegible names.
A whare is a maori hut or dwelling but I'm also told was also a name for a relocatable type of dwelling. This one was used when the men went out doing harvesting or hunting I think. Possibly taken early to mid 1930s around the Christchurch or Rangiora area.
A photo from New Zealand, possibly Rangiora, of my paternal grandfathers young niece, Lynley Barker with a chap named Ted Walls or Wallis. I haven't found his connection to the family. This photo was possibly taken around 1934 or 5.
|Taken in New Zealand, possibly Forsyth or Musson family members|
