Digital Photograph - Three Men Posing in Front of Jaguar Mark VII Car, Broadmeadows, circa 1960 Image Reg. No: MM 110820

Description Of Content:
Three men in front of a Jaguar mark VII, in the driveway of a house.

This photograph shows Russel Wolffe, Desmond Kelly and Davitt (surname unknown) standing in front of Russel Wolffe's Jaguar Mark VII car, circa 1960. Russel is on the far left while Davitt is in the centre. The family thinks that it may have been a posed shot, given the location. 'It was probably unusual to see a Jaguar in Broadmeadows in those days.' Desmond Kelly was a premier recording artist who had immigrated to Australia from Sri Lanka where he was very well known, to continue his craft in Australia.
