Wilfred Taylor with nine children from Britain. With nine bright and healthy children, Mr and Mrs Wilfred Taylor, of Nottingham, jumped at the opportunity when told their immigration to Australia had been made possible despite the size of their family on the new arrangement with the Fairbridge Society. Mr Taylor, a miner for 13 years at Bestwood Colliery, near Nottingham, decided a year ago the family's only chance for a worthwhile future was in Australia, but they had no personal friends to sponsor them. They shared two bedrooms in their Nottingham home, and had no prospects of getting a bigger house, Mrs Taylor said. From left to right, backrow, Mr Taylor, 37, Brenda, 13, Anthony, 3, Robert 15, Mrs Taylor 34, Sylvia 9. Frontrow; Barry,7, Dorothy,5, Linda, 10, Sandra,8 and Susan, 12
