Beaconsfield Rd Moss Vale

The house in Beaconsfield Rd, Moss Vale. While Henry and Flo are known to have been renting the house while their daughter Dot was still a child, at one stage, Henry and Flo lived in the back half of the house while Dot and her husband Clyde (who were married in 1945) lived in the front half. The windows have been updated to a more modern design. The front verandah is still enclosed the same way as it was when they were there. The lean-to section which can now be seen at the back of the house did not exist. The garage did not exist either. In its place was a sturdily constructed timber-framed shed lined with corrugated iron which backed onto the side fence (See photo of Flo, Harry and Norm below). Unlike in the house photo, the driveway was on the left-hand side of the house. (Information from personal knowledge of John Owen who as a child, visited there many times. Photo 1993)

Griffith St Oak Flats

The home at 84 Griffith St Oak Flats (c.1953) which Henry and Florist built with the help of their son Norman and occupied for the rest of their lives.

This image (Click to Enlarge) shows the front and back of a picture found among the possessions of their daughter, Dorothy O'Neil (nee Collins). Because of the comments on the back it appears to be related to Harry and Flo. The photo was processed by the Jones Murray-Vale Studio in Waikerie SA. The wording (which appears to be written in Flo's hand) says "To Eileen with Best wishes From Flo and Harry. May 1950. S. Australia. Bubners or Bubrers Taken 1943 Sydney N.S.Wales". Could Bubners or Bubrers be the surname of the couple in the photo? It's not known. The identity of Eileen is totally unknown. Any information regarding this photo would be gratefully received.
