Old Film: The Two Boys (1940s)

These two boys continue to appear in this group of old film negatives. This photograph was scanned from a 6cm x 9cm film negative made by my grandmother Elvie Ruth Bonner (1901-1986). The boys are around the age of my father, from earlier photographs, so this image was probably made in the early-to-mid 1940s. If anyone can tell me who they are I’d be interested to hear – all I know is this photographs seem to have been made somewhere other than Risby’s Basin logging camp at Maydena, Tasmania. My uncle Bill may be able to fill in the gaps if he reads this post. I love the way the little guy on the right is still chewing lollies.
