George & Helen MacDonald

This is the only photo I have of my Great-great grandparents George Stewart MacDonald and Helen Marshall, and I believe it may be the only photo of either of them ever taken.

I don’t know for certain when it was taken, or where, but I have narrowed it down. After George retired in 1925, they moved to Bald Hills in Brisbane, Queensland, where they lived until their respective deaths. I am of the opinion that this photo was taken at their Bald Hills home, some time between 1925 and 1931, the year Helen died. There is nothing on the back of the photo (from memory), nor anything other than their names written next to in the photo album.

A precious photo, an only photo. Please Contact Me if you can help narrow down the date at all.


Update: While still the only known photo of George, it is no longer the only photo of Helen – see my Helen Marshall post.
