DESCRIPTION: This is a family portrait of John Beavis Randell, together with his wife Ella Alice Randell (nee Sinkinson), and their first child Ella Annie Randell
DATE: late 1900
CURRENT OWNER OF THE ITEM: Alan Phillips
STORY/ABOUT:  John Beavis Randell was the only child from William Beavis Randell’s second marriage, and was born at Gumeracha, South Australia, and spent his life there. So it makes sense that this beautiful photograph was taken by local photographer H.C. Ives of Gumeracha.
Unfortunately I do not know the occasion as to why why photograph was taken, but they do look dressed up, so I’m sure there was an occasion.
