Jessie Paul at Greenhall

A photo from the 1940s next. This Mrs Jessie Paul at Greenhall. Jessie owned Greenhall House in that wartime decade, her family purchasing the estate from the Wardrop Moore family in 1921. She’s pictured in her garden , not far from where the current carpark is now at Greenhall Park.

This was very much a family photo for the Paul family, the matriarch photographed in her own expansive garden. The family dog is an absolute monster! The size of him! Perhaps not just a pet, but to warn off any trespassers in this remote location. I can only imagine what she fed him every day!
