Shared Photo: Oldfield, Joseph & his wife Elizabeth Rawlings

+12 votes

I wanted to share this family photo of Joseph Oldfield and his wife Elizabeth "Betsy" Rawlings with the community. We believe it was taken in Tharwa, NSW, Australia in 1925 on the occasion of their 50th wedding anniversary. Both children of convicts, they were early pioneers of the area that is now Canberra, ACY (Australia's national capital).

What a very nice photo, Roberta. You are fortunate to have it. If it was taken in 1925 they would have been in their mid-70's, and they both look great for their age. Thank you for sharing this family treasure wit us.
