- A Place & Date Depicted Beaconsfield Upper, Australia
Negative - Warmbrunn Family at their Home, Tarilta, Upper Beaconsfield, Victoria, circa 1914 Reg. No: MM 8112
- The Warmbrunn family at their home, 'Tarilta', in Upper Beaconsfield, during World War I. The house was of wattle and daub construction and was lost in the 1983 Ash Wednesday bushfires.
The photograph probably depicts Catherine and Ernest Warmbrunn and their daughters Mary, Catherine and Millicent. It would have been taken before 18 July 1915, when Ernest died. The couple also had two sons, Alfred and Frederick. Alfred enlisted to serve in World War I in March 1916 (service # 2014). He was a 31-year-old gardener, and listed his mother as his next of kin since his father had died. He returned safely to Australia in 1919. His brother served in the Labour Corps during World War II.
