Hi there Roger,

Thanks for taking our photos up at the lighthouses the other day, all good. Went digging for a photo of 27 Verney Street, and this one was taken in April, 1962. Ian's dad used to always keep in in good repair as per photo, so glad he can't see it in its present condition.

Bye, Ian and Del Pattemore

Hi Roger,

That house in the background belonged to a Mrs. Verney. Not sure about the Fort - there used to be a lot of air raid shelters up the back on that hill. Ian tried to get more details from his brother but he is away at the moment, so will try again when he gets back. The name of the house is 'Wahroonga' - aboriginal for 'My/Our Home' but not sure which.

Regards, Del

Hi there again Roger,

Re that 'fort' on the hill behind 27 Verney Street, Ian's brother said it used to be a radar station and the Council later used it to store equipment once it was disused as a radar station and the sail taken away. Hope that helps in some way.

Regards, Ian and Del
