  1. The man far left back row is my father Joseph “Joe” John Horan (1904-1965). I have been trying to find out what he did for work after 1924 when his father Tom, a Customs Officer, died and 1926 when his mother died at Coogee i.e. the six years prior to 1932 when he commenced work as a Tally Clerk with a shipping company. After his parents died at Coogee Joe and his siblings had to vacate the rented house in Melody Street and he moved to Bondi renting a flat with his sister Rene. He was a member of the Bondi Surf Bathers & Life Saving Club. Joe lived the rest of his life at Bondi (Lucius Court, Lucius Street) up behind the Astra Hotel. Joe used the Turkish Baths a lot where he met well known Jockeys and Boxers (Harry Hayes and Tommy Burns). He worked at City Tatts Club in Pitt Street as head waiter for 17 years prior to his death in Sep 1965.
