Derry and Amelie, I hope you're not learning your counting skills from your Dad.
I don't know who is in the photo apart from my Great-Grandmother (Jeannie Sutherland) and an American friend, John Harper, who are both at the back. I think the young woman at the front, who appears to be facing the wrong way, may be my Grandmother, Hope Sinclair.
I don't know where the photo was taken but I'm quite sure it wasn't Flotta.

I thought that gent looked American Phyllis, and the car looks to be left-hand drive. What gives?
