Malcolm & Gertie
Gertie’s Album of the early 1960s

Photos taken during their youth or WW-II are included in their buttons above left.
Photos taken after WW-II are grouped by decade in the buttons above right.

To return to the 1960s page, click the above red “Photos 1960s” button.

The photos in the album are in approx. date sequence.  We kept that sequence except (i) polo, which we grouped together, by year and tournament (except those taken by Gordie, 1963), (ii) later photos that clearly had been inserted in empty spaces, we put these in date sequence, i.e. last.

 Gertie’s original titles to the photos are in bright yellow  (we added dashes to separate names); our notes are in white.  For ease of reference, each photo is numbered above, assigned sequentially when we scanned the album, front to back.  Most photos are square (9 cm, 3½ inches), 6 per page; professional photos are rectangular & much larger, fitting 1 or 2 per page (e.g. polo tournaments).

Abbreviations: self or AGB - Gertie Traill/Benitz; FMB - Malcolm Benitz

PHOTOS PRIOR TO 1960: These photos are also included in their correct decade.

SKULL, Co. CORK, IRELAND
Rev. Robert Traill, my (Gertie’s) great-grandfather, was one of the very few landowners who stood by their tenantry during the great potatoe famine & died during it of the fever.  He is still remembered there & when auntie Evelyn and Daphne visited Skull in 1963, the locals found A. Evelyn was a Mrs. Traill, they were not allowed to pay their hotel bill & expenses.
