    Hi!

    I am currently undertaking a research internship based at the University of Melbourne. In the new engineering collection I think there is a photo of Robert johnstone Donaldson is featured in. I’ve seen the WWI photos and I think the similarity is strong. However they are profile views and I only have an image with Donaldson facing towards the camera. The image dates to 1902. Do you have any images from this time I can use to compare? You can contact me through frob2921@uni.sydney.edu.au

      Thanks for your message Frances – I’ll send you an email now! I can definitely assist and would be very interested to see the Melbourne image as I didn’t know it existed. I assume you know, but RJD was a Melbourne Engineering grad.

    Hi James,

    I just stumbled across this by accident and am fascinated by these photographs of my ancestors!

    My name is Howard Gratnell Mitchell, and my grandfather was Ralph Gratnell Mitchell who features in your photos. (My dad was Peter Gratnell and my son is Hugo Gratnell!).

    I would love to see clearer versions of your photos as we don’t have many (if any) of Ralph and his siblings as kids and very few of my namesake great grandfather. Not sure if/how that could be facilitated.

    Regards

    Howard
