Alice Todd, Venis Olin & Merle in Cathedral Square in 1937

1937

Three generations -  Alice Todd, Venis Olin & Merle in Cathedral Square in 1937. By the colour of the clothes and they are all wearing gloves it would be a winter photo. Mother and daughter regularly met in town on a Friday and had afternoon tea at D.I.C. Probably heading to the tram stop to make their way home.
