1975 Hastie’s Farm

A wonderful , warm photo from Marion Robertson, who kindly shared her picture of herself with friends at former Hastie’s Farm, just off Victoria Street back in 1975.

Marion will no doubt be able to answer this, but I thought I’d give others a chance to see if you recognise anybody.
