Unidentified photos

Possibly from the Baker family

This photo was among those belonging to Laurie Baker. It's a Kodak photo postcard from Vice Regal Studios at Grafton, NSW.  Apparently Kodak postcards didn't appear in Australia until about 1907.  Laurie's youngest sister Joyce was born in 1909 which would match the age of the photo but I can't see any resemblance to Joyce in her later photos. None of the other siblings' dates of birth fit with the postcard style photo. The photo could be of a relative or friend but has been tagged "Baker family" for the moment. More research is needed.

Probably a Church of England hall

This might possibly be an old Church of England hall at Mitchelton or surrounding suburbs. The hall looks a little taller than the old hall at St Mary's Anglican Church at Enoggera from a photo taken there.  It's not the St Matthews Grovely hall but perhaps it was at the site of the old All Soul's Church Mitchelton before the church was built. The photo would have probably been taken in the late 1950s or early 1960s.

All these photos were taken in the 1970s or 1980s and might be the same area in Victoria, probably in Melbourne. The first photo is labelled "our back lane" with a cross marking what is presumably the back of the property. It is probably connected with the second photo of a unit block.

This photo might be Jane Vine (nee Ireland) (1841-1905)
It was taken by the same photographer and possibly at the same time as that of Maria Hay (nee Hopper or Hazelwood).  Maria died in 1880 and had granchildren living in Sydney.  Jane Vine (nee Ireland) was born in 1841 and was one of the grandchildren in Sydney. The photo is labelled ""Janeie Mum's Aunt". Jane Ireland was our great grandmother's aunt and as the photos belonged to our grandmother. There is another photo labelled  "Auntie Jane, Mum's Aunt"  but they don't appear to be the same ladies. The origin of the handwriting on the labels needs to be determined as well.

This photo was probably taken in the 1870s.

This photo might be Jane Vine (nee Ireland) (1841-1905)

Jane Vine (nee Ireland) (1841-1905) was our great grandmother's aunt and the photos belonged to our grandmother.

Although this photo is labelled "Auntie Jane, Mum's Aunt" it doesn't look exactly like the same lady labelled "Janeie Mum's Aunt".

This photo was probably taken in the late 1880s or 1890s.
