About this object

A black and white photograph showing the married couple David Walter Wassell and Julia Louisa (nee Sourdon). They married in 1923. David was generally known as Walter, as his father was also called David. The Wassell family farmed at Ferndale for some years.

This photograph is one of a group of six donated to the Society by former member June Mawhinney, a descendant of the Wassell's.

We would be very interested in further information regarding the people in the photograph, and their families.
