George and Koala

Geoff’s maternal grandparents lived at 64 Avalon Parade in a house built by his grandfather, William George Pryor on land they bought in 1944. George (who had three daughters) was a very gentle man and this koala looks very content and secure in his arms
in their backyard. George worked originally as a coach builder, later branching out into carpentry. He ‘fitted out’ the retail shops on the ground floor of the heritage-listed 2-storey building on the corner of Avalon Parade and Old Barrenjoey Road for A.J.Small.
