I suppose that keeping the receipt was a way of remembering his most enjoyable leave with the Dyer family in Pinner. Or maybe he was just a 'bower bird' and kept things like this - I do, too.
I am undertaking some research on the Loureiro family and I am interested to see you obtained information on Gwendolyn Vasco and were able to place her in Melbourne in 1927 playing the mandolin on the radio. I was wondering if you could share the source? Thanks!
I found that information on the National Library of Australia newspapers website. I didn't bookmark or tag it (silly me) but I'll dive back in and see if I can find it again. It was on an ABC radio program guide, I think.
I'm going to photograph her grave tomorrow if the weather is kind to me. I'll post the photo.
