  The gentleman standing to the left is the bus owner David Beattie, originally from Tullyveery and in later years residing in Lisbarnett. You will note the "BT" in the Company name on the front of the bus, I can only surmise this is a homophone!? I have this photo in the house somewhere. I know this because he is my grandfather - he died in 1951 aged 77, if this helps you to date the photo!

I am trying to get some help in identifying people in the attached photo taken in 1933. We know that the young man (center) is Adrian "Bill" DeWind, son of Norman DeWind whose brother was Edmund DeWind. We believe the woman on his left is Alice Maud DeWind. The woman to Alice's left is Edith Caroline DeWind. The woman in front of Edith, we believe to be Bessie Stone. We do not know the others. Could you help us in confirming the people and identifying those we can't identify?

Bessie Stone and Friend.
