|I wonder where this house is?|
"This is the back off our
house and that is Dad at
the harth [hearth?] room windo
and a nother yound man
and Allan Wright in the
door way and the sumer [summer]
house with the creeper
getting up to the top
My grandmother wrote this so it seems that the man in the centre of this photo is her father, Robert William Jones, who died in 1920, which makes this, the only known photo of Robert William Jones.
In 1909, Robert William Jones is recorded as living at Clunes Road, North Creswick,
on the 28th December 1911 the house was destroyed by fire. In 1914, the family is listed as living at Vincent Street, in nearby Daylesford.
My grandmother would have been seven years old when the fire destroyed the house so perhaps this is Daylesford house?
