Adrian Holloway and his mother Elizabeth Holloway, and probably his two sisters went on an outing on one of the Port Phillip ferries, either the 'Hygeia', 'Weeroona' or 'Ozone', probably to Sorrento, in the 1920s. The photograph shows Adrian smoking a pipe in a broad brimmed, high crowned hat, and his mother in a turban style hat with a crest on it, in the centre of the crowds on board the steamer.
