Williamstown, Melbourne, Australia 1883 – Sandringham, Melbourne, Australia 1977

Madame W. Mortill (Lydia Mortill) 1926 c. Creation Notes: researcher Anne Summers estimates the date as somewhere between 1924 and 1927 as these were the years when Lydia Mortill was attracting a lot of social notice. She was in Table Talk a lot that year and that would have attracted the attention of Ruth Hollick.
