Violet, Myrtle and Daphne Bishop
The photographers Yeoman and Co operated from 47 Chapel Street, Prahran, from 1884 until 1891, which assists in dating the above photo of three of the "Flower Sisters", as the Bishop girls were known.
At the back is Violet, who was almost three and a half years older than Myrtle. Myrtle is front left, and next to her is the youngest Bishop child, Daphne Lorna Josephine, who was only fifteen months younger than Myrtle.
