Mum's Friend Joan

This is my mum's friend Joan who only ever visited Warrnambool in 1954 - just after my mum was married. Mum (Margaret Eagles) was working at FJs and they walked from home to the gardens and took Joan's photo there. The garden's have been a tourist attraction for a long time it seems!  Below the photos, mum talks about her friend Joan.   Julie Eagles
