Barry Ray Year: 1932 Villages: Pease PottageTilgate Lake island cleared by Nix family
According to the notes attached to this photograph the men are clearing the island of unwanted plants, especially the Rhododendrons.
It does not specify which island, but it may have been the one in the southern part of Silt Lake, just to the south of Tilgate Lake.
On the left is Stephen Nix, with on the right his eldest brother, Christopher Nix.
The Large Version shows, from the left, the three sons, Christopher Nix, Stephen Nix, and Luke Nix. They appear to be surrounded by dead and dying Rhododendron ponticum!
