Elsey Dearing, pictured nursing her son Gordon with her eldest son William (Ron’s father) at the arrival of the plane at Northfield. Family legend suggests William John Dearing (husband of Elsey) rode his motor cycle into The Advertiser after he had taken the photo and they put his photo into the newspaper next day.
