Scope and content

Photograph of people swimming in the lake in front of Harrop's Point. The inscription on the verso reads "Harrop's Point and Cottage approx 1929." The woman on the dock wearing a swimming cap is Alison Barr, the child is Norman Barr, and the man holding Norman is George Gordon. The man standing in the doorway may be Bert Harrop. Norman wasn't born until 1932, so the photograph can't have been taken in 1929 as the inscription suggests.
