I wanted to share this family photo of William Finn with the community. Location: Mount Lyndhurst, South Australia, Australia. Date: 1918. My Mother Nancy Finn is sitting next to her father, and her brothers are either sitting or standing in the back of the cart...500px-Finn-804.jpg

Wonderful photo! The year says 1918 and also found here on Wikipedia. See 1918 in Australia. A team of donkeys (I count 6 donkeys?) and the wagon is a wonderful glimpse of life in the early 20th century. A true treasure. 

Thank you for sharing
