    @ [] Here's something! Sitting at the beach today reading the July/August 2020 NRMA 'Open Road' (because I was trying to avoid talking to a boring stranger) and there is this photo in the letters section on page 11. A Peter Kirkton writes to say he has a copy with handwritten reverse with the names of these characters - " ... The reason I have this picture is that the central figure in front is my aunt, the Australian novelist Christina Stead. But I don't know how to apply the names on the back. ... ... the Riley Street Depot was on the corner of Riley and Collins Street in what is currently a school and was such back then. During 1919, Christina was 17 years old and in her final year of schooling, apparently excelling in English with a special interest in poetry and prose. ... ... " Wiki - Might already be common knowledge at NSW State Archives.
