Nola Russell, Lorraine Fly, John Richardson, Margaret Fly and Noel Miller at a birthday party, Caulfield, November 1946. The children are celebrating the shared birthday of sisters Lorraine and Margaret, and their cousin John. Only the cousins and a friend and a neighbour were invited. The three children often celebrated their birthdays together. None of them can now recall much about that particular birthday.

The birthday party was held in the dining room of 21 Hillside Avenue, Caulfield. The house was still there in 2019. The small windowed boxes in the fire surround are recessed cavities with ornaments inside.
