Here the family watches a yacht race. About two years after this photo was taken, the family (now with a newborn daughter added to the family), set sail from Hervey Bay in a ferro-cement ketch that Wallace Callen built himself in his spare time. They intended to sail the world and return to Australia in a few years. Their story is told in the book "Around the World in a Cement Boat" written by his eldest daughter, Cheryl Trzasko, published in 2013.
