Subject and Association Description

Enfys Graham was married to David Graham. They spent a year living in Greymouth while waiting for David's school house to be built in Kumara Junction.

When Toss Woollaston moved to Greymouth, David and Toss quickly became lasting friends. David was very interested with what Toss had to share with him about his art and the two, along with Clari Sofield, would go out painting together on the weekends.
