Journal by janilye

This is a photograph of Edward Murray's sons, taken on Bruny Island. I'm not sure who is who but I do know the two in the middle would be John (Jack) and Walter both Tasmanian champion sawyers for 12 years.

Bruny Island is an island off the south-eastern coast of Tasmania, from which it is separated by the D?Entrecasteaux Channel. Both the island and the channel are named after French explorer Bruni d'Entrecasteaux.
