During World War II that house in Flora Street was where my Uncle Eric, Aunt Gwen and family lived. There is an old ham radio station in the backyard – it’s on the left in the bottom photo of the house. The call sign is still visible, though painted over. In the early 1940s family shot we have John Christison, my uncle Eric Christison, my great-grandmother Sophia Jane Christison, my grandfather Roy, my brother Ian.
