Summary:
Black and white photograph showing Denise Taylor with her sisters Lorraine and Lynette, and their friend Beverley Lloyd, with their bicycles in Noble Park, 1958-1959.

I was raised, and still live in west Springvale, near Springvale West Primary school, (my old haunt). The school has barely changed in appearance, save the name. Wish I could say the same for the neighborhood.... Regs. John. age 46.
