District Photo Album
St. John's West District

Alcock and Brown

St. John's

This photo, later signed by Arthur Brown himself, was taken at Lester's Field
on June 14th, 1919. In this photo there are many local people from St. John's
gathered around the Vickers Vimy before takeoff. The McWilliam family
can claim a unique connection to this historical event, for Jean Clinton
(McWilliam) is one of the little girls seated in front of the plane!
From left to right the girls in the photo are Sarah Andrews,
Ethel Johnston, our maternal Grandmother, Jean Clinton
(McWilliam), Stella White, and Jean’s sister
Mollie Clinton (Lush/Gaulton).

Also, somewhere in the photo, is Gertrude Lester (nee Fitzpatrick),
who was 7 years old at the time. She lived at 2 Blackmarsh Rd.

Note: Anyone who knows the names of others present in the above photo
please contact NGB, so that those individuals can be identified as well?
