An unexpected find on Pictures Australia, part of Trove, and out of copyright too!
My great grandfather, Lewis Raikes GARRETT (1876 – 1939) who I have written about a number of times before.
Lewis worked for the Metropolitan Fire Brigade for 33 years, from 1906 until his death in 1939. Here is a great photo of him in his younger years as part of a larger compilation photo.
I have added a couple of photos from our family collection too.
