This is the families garage at Dromana - this was just south of the Dromana Post Office - I think my Father (Frank Whitaker) is standing out front.judging by the sign offering car hire, it was before the inception of Portsea Passenger Service. I remember Dad commenting that he used to drive into Flinders St. Station and have a chat with Reg Ansett before they went opposite directions (Hamilton for Reg). Ill check with my Brother Lloyd - he will have better dates. The Family residence was down the alley on the right. It could be my Grandfather William John, or my Uncle Lance. You can see on the top of the photo, WJ. i think it is probably Frank with his first Wife Gwen (sitting down). There is quite a story of how the family started out on the Peninsula. The Cars, Bus company and Cinemas then Drive-In.
