Island History Trust Image Collection


A family re-union of the descendants of Jack and Rose O' Brien, of Marshfield Street and Thermopylae Gate, on the Isle of Dogs in 1989. Five of the original eleven children were included, the family is scattered over the United Kingdom and the two other surviving children could not get to the party. The O' Briens and Harveys are connected by marriage to many other Island families who were also represented at the re-union, including the Battens, Downs, Murrells, Stones, Moxoms and Cassidys.
