The way we were


This photograph shows two girls of unknown identity near the old Toodyay Railway Station which was located where the Alma Beard Medical Centre now stands. The station was closed in 1966 after a new standard gauge line was built between Perth and the eastern States. The photograph is among a group of items relating to Olive Pretoria Lloyd (1900-1994) of North Toodyay and was recently offered to the Toodyay museum collection by Glenys Harrison of Bunbury. Olive Lloyd married Egbert Douglas Sinclair in 1918 at Toodyay’s St Stephen’s Anglican Church and may be one of the two girls pictured. Photo: Newcastle Gaol Museum, historical notes Beth Frayne.
