Lost picnickers found?

Recently we had a lovely surprise when a local resident dropped in to tell us about a photograph she saw in the December issue of the local magazine HarbourView.

The photograph is one of my favourites, with six happy people picnicking at Balmoral. It came to the Local Studies Collection with very little information.

A few years ago we put it on display in our regular Lost Mosman exhibition in the hope that someone would recognised the picnickers – but no luck and it went back into the drawer to be discovered by the astute editors of HarbourView.

Our observant resident thinks the photograph shows members of the Carver family who at one time lived in Belmont Road, Mosman. She noted the similarity between the men and the photographs, now on the web, of brothers Sterling, Bernard and Dudley Carver.

What do you think?
