Last Friday we shared our grandfather's story with another wonderful group of people from our family's former neighbourhood. We consider this an honour and a privilege. Bronia Armstrong and her family were also residents of this neighbourhood.
Following our presentation a gentleman came forward to express his admiration for a young woman he met in the fifties. He said she was not only beautiful on the outside but also on the inside. The young woman was our Aunt Melva, the eldest of the Brown children.
A snapshot of our family's pioneering life in Brisbane's western suburbs can be read in the Toowong & District Historical Society publication The Cocks Family Tree - available for purchase from the Society and held by the Toowong Library.
