Family Photos – Granddad in Stage Costume

Posted: August 15, 2010 in Photos

I have been going through my parents photos and photo albums looking for old photos of my parents, their parents and other family members.

Below is one of my Paternal Great Grandfather Ernest Mitchell born in Adelaide South Australia in 1882 and died in NSW in 1945. The photo was taken in the late 1930′s. On the back of the photo it says “Grandad in Stage Costume”.

Ernest apparently appeared in a number of plays, including ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’. I’m yet to find any other information on what other plays he would have been in or what thearte they were performed in. Ernest and his wife Daisy were living in Northy Sydney during the 1920′s. Maybe one day I will find some additonal information.

    Love Ern’s photo.

    Good to see that the “White shoe brigade” was out and about in the 20s
