Maud Evans, with a koala bear. This was likely to have been during her first trip to Australia, when she visited Australia in 1953 for 6 weeks. She was on her own without Percy who was still working.

Maud Evans. I think this was taken in South Africa due to the colour quality looking as if it is an Agfa film slide with the lake behind the Hartbeespoort Dam in 1964 (Steve). However, it has been suggested this was taken while she was in Adelaide when she flew on without Percy, after his funeral, in 1965.

Extra Photo contributed by Sue Burbidge
Maud Evans in 1950s

Sue said: “Maud”. “On the reverse in Grandma’s handwriting, it says Jan 1965, with love from Mother”.  “This appears to be a professionally taken photo as it’s in a folder type frame.”

I very much agree with Sue, and I think that the date is fascinating. This is what I would like to add:

Percy had died while visiting Stuart and Vera in South Africa.

Stuart was an accomplished photographer himself.

Maud stayed-on in South Africa before I believe she flew to Australia to be with Dennis and Jeannette.

My guess is that this was taken by Stuart in Johannesburg before she left (Percy passed away on 24 November 1964). What clinches it for me is that she looks as if she is wearing a summer dress!.

Stuart no doubt gave her extra prints of this lovely photo to give to the family on her return to the UK.

Maud would have been very much grieving the loss of Percy when this was taken.

Steve

Sue said: “Look at that writing (bottom right) isn’t it the professional photographer’s name?”

Steve: OK. I give in!!!

Sue Said: “Maud. Love the necklace!”

Steve:

Really beautiful, in my opinion. But, then I am biased!

Was it Oil of Olay she used with the odd powder puff – was that “blusher”?

Would she have used eye-makeup?

Sue: “What I remember is she always used 4711 scent!”
Steve: Yes. I think that’s the one! It was first produced in 1885.

Please, download this page as an ebook and keep it for the memory.

    Note amended for second last slide (colour slide of Maud on a rock with water behind her:

    I think this was taken in South Africa due to the colour quality looking as if it is an Agfa film slide with the lake behind the Hartbeespoort Dam in 1964 (Steve). However, it has been suggested this was taken while she was in Adelaide when she flew on without Percy, after his funeral, in 1965.
