Is this Lerna St., East Brisbane, 1927?


It's nearly Christmas in Brisbane and its wet, the dams are overflowing and it's been flooding in all the usual places (just don't mention the '74 flood) so we won't. Instead, here is a photo from The Brisbane Courier, Wednesday 26th January, 1927, I think that it  was taken looking down Lerna St from the corner of Didswith and Withington St. I am sure the house in the centre of the photo is where Wayne, Sharon and family live;  the shrubbery to the left are the mangroves that run down the bank of Kingfisher Creek.
