2017-03-21 18:19 q.m. Premier W. A. Helman standing with two men, New South Wales, ca. 1910 (Version)
Here we see, L-R: the Sun's law reporter E. George Marks, with Bill Holman K.C. (former NSW Premier) and A.B. Shand K.C.

I haven't yet managed to identify the location.<br/><br/><a href='http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/184210537'>http://trove.nl...
