A.W. Eustace was my great, great grandfather nad it is wonderful to be able to read some history and see his talent and so thankyou very much for posting this information on the web.
I am also looking into writing or rather collating a book about him and so any informatiion would be greatly appreciated and will be acknowledged. Kerryn Jess, grandaughter of Phillip Cousins and Ethel Leura Jessup.
