Old Film:: Dad and Uncle Bill (1950s)

The nineteen-fifties saw my father, Lionel Bruce Clark, into his late teens and early twenties. His brother Bill was a good deal younger. This photograph is scanned from a 6cm x 9cm film negative made by my grandmother Elvie Ruth Bonner (1901-1986). I never really got Bill, even though I boarded at his house when I had my first real job as a junior sales assistant in a department store. I remember him putting me on a train after I left the Navy… I had $20 in my pocket and hadn’t enrolled for the dole. Nowdays, Bill survives his late brothers (my father and Nig died a month apart in 2000). I think he still lives in Queensland.
