  • It would appear that the Venables family moved to Warrawee in 1927. The property was initially owned by Mr CHADLEIGH, I assume the VENABLES purchased the property off Mr CHADLEIGH although I have no information to confirm this.

  • It’s only a hunch but the fact that this is apparently painted on hardboard and the style looks very similar to others painted by Charlie Shayes I have a feeling that this is one of his he knocked out on the quick. Only doubt is that there is no signature which on others he put it in the bottom r/ hand corner! Graham.
