Griffith & Beatrice
















I had some interesting mail from the librarian in Waverley Municipality (which encompasses Bondi Beach in Sydney), showing pictures of my great-grandfather Griffith E Williams (born in Dolgellau Wales) when he was an alderman on Waverley Council between 1925 and 1931. It's the first time I've seen a picture of him, and the last picture (below) shows the greatest likeness to my grandfather.

It was his mother who was born in Coniston, Cumbria where I was staying earlier this week. The other picture is not her, but his wife.
