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 unknown people on the beach, posing for a photograph, or looking at the view, with man taking a photograph in the foreground.
