home | bio | 1927


At age 14, this is the second earliest photo I have of Coral Browne.

I assume the kisses are for her "Aunt Teen", my grandmother, Christina (Bennett) Robertson (who was technically her great-aunt, the sister of her mother's father).

The caption reveals that by 1927 the family was at their second residence, in Hocking St Footscray, a house the parents named after themselves: 'Lesvic' - for Leslie and Victoria. The house has gone.
