Deen Family Photographs located
In 1953, the Deen family lost nearly all of their possessions, including family photographs, when a fire destroyed their home.
Recently, in the John Oxley Library Reading Room, whilst seeking images and newspaper clippings of the Holland Park Mosque for a display to be held at the Mosque, Janeth Deen was elated to discover photographs of her family, including her late father Wazir Deen who passed away in 1957.
Janeth, a member of the Mt. Gravatt Historical Society, worked as a history and economics teacher until her retirement but continues to do supply teaching at Springwood State High. She recently helped Mustafa Ally research his book 100 Years of History: The Holland Park Mosque 1908-2008 which will be launched at the Mosque Fair this Saturday, 30 August 2008.
