2019-08-20 08:27 beetle List: ALFRED THOMPSON - District Foreman, Running Inspector, Di...
Alfred and Fanny Thompson's last home together was 'Austral' at 38 Dendy Street, Middle Brighton. It was from here that Fanny met Alfred at lunchtime to give him his lunch at the Dendy Sreet Crossing, when he was on the Brighton line, in the late 1800's. That was told to me in the late 1950's by his daughter Bessie (Elizabeth) (nee Thompson) Douglas, my grandmother. I just assumed that he must have been the Train Driver, but he was more likely to have been the District Running Inspector or District Foreman at the time. Another family member was...

Hi there<br/><br/>For future reference, I recognise this photo is from the Beaumaris Zoo (Hobart) Queens Domain. You can tell by the trees, the cages, the central aviary and the top of the Bandstand on the far top right hand side of the image, which appear in other contemporary photos.<br/><br/>Cheers for now, Neil Gill<br/>
