Val- are you a relative of the family or knew them?
Surviving relatives may be interested in contacting you if you care to email me.

Hi Richard, just noticed your comment from January. Yes, I am the niece of Mary and Jim Leggat and Isabella Tennant. My mother, Isabella Leggat was the sister of Mary & Jim Leggat but she's not in this photo. The children in the photo are all grandchildren of Isabella Sinclair in the photo with Betsy & John Norquay. Janice Pires is my second cousin and Wilma Paulley, who has also commented on some of the other photos is also my cousin. The Leggat and Tennant children spent their summers in Herston during the 20's & 30's. Based on ages of the children, I'd say the photo was 1930/1931 or thereabouts.
Hi Richard and Valerie

I have just found this photograph.
Isabella Sinclair was my Great Grand Aunt.
It would be great to contact you to see if there are other family photographs or any information that you have.
