This photograph, showing Dennis Rickards in the backyard of his recently constructed home at 125 Vogel Street, Roslyn, was taken with a Brownie E. camera. Rickards' purchased the property in about 1950 and had a house constructed by Albert Hands White in c.1951-52. The wooden wheelbarrow was made by hand by his neighbour, Fred Andrews. The shed on the left served as a chicken coup, bicycle and garden shed. Rickards is digging up the clay soil so that field tiles can be laid.
