1.The photo of Kate Touchell (nee Walker) was taken by "Thos O' Byrne Palace Studio, Pritchard & Rissik Sts., Johannesburg".
2.The note on the back of the photo of the 5 Touchell children states they are in South Africa but later photo showing the 6th child (only 4 in photograph) is on a cardboard mount named "Rundle Studio 62 Rundle Street, Adelaide".
3.The second group photo of the Touchell children shows only 4 of the 6 - I believe these are: L to R Olive Victoria, Hilary Harcourt, Claude Saint Clare & Gordon Gladstone.

The entry from the "Marriages" page of the family bible of William and Isabella Walker reads:
" Katherine Walker & James Henry Touchell was married Feb 20th at my house near Redhill 1885".
This is the first time I have seen Catherine Walker recorded as "Katherine". In the family register William Walker records her name as Catherine. CW May 2007
