Passenger Contract Ticket - SS Beltana, P&O Line, Third Class, 1921 Reg. No: HT 20
- Passenger Contract Ticket for the SS Beltana, P&O Line, Third Class. It was issued to Evelyn May Rowell when she migrated to Australia from England in 1921.

Evelyn and Charles had seven children and settled in Wangaratta, living a simple life, camping out with Charles working at a rope works, as well as doing some timber work and flourmilling - this was Depression time. In the 1940s, the family moved to Parkdale.
