    You can see the extra concern with complete attention as given the dire world situation at the time and it all hitting home, but yet so far away, timeless moment captured perfectly

    Questioning the date "22/10/1940". The nearest gentleman with a newspaper is reading The Sun with the headlines - "RUMANIA FEARS BRITISH BOMBS German Invaders Alarmed for Oil-wells Dictator losing his grip" ... etc ... which happened in The Sun newspaper of Thursday 17 October 1940, five days before. Read All About It! - All the gents newspapers look uncrumpled and recently purchased; the afternoon edition? The sun is in the west and they are on the ferry home (Neutral Bay / Mosman ?) after a hard day at the office. Name that ferry!
