Beginning of “ClareVilla”

This photo taken in 1923 shows Alan Hay with his daughter Irene on his lap. Alan had married Clara Dorothy Collier in 1919. His other daughter Evelyn sits between the two Butcher children and her dad. The girl on the right was a friend from the dairy at Careel Bay. Note the lean-to against the early building which eventually became “Clare Villa”. Clara’s dad James purchased the first block of land on Clareville Beach.
