    (contact QldPics about this picture)

    The man in the middle is probably the conservationist and author Arthur Groom (1904 - 1953). Arthur Groom was a an avid bushwalker and outdoor photographer who did many walls in the Lamington National Park in the 1930's.

    "Groom was a remarkable walker. About 1930 he walked across country by moonlight from O'Reilly's to Mount Barney, selected a camp-site, talked to landowners and returned, covering seventy miles (113 km), midnight to midnight. He died in Melbourne of coronary vascular disease on 14 November 1953 while engaged in tourist promotion, and was buried in Box Hill cemetery. He had married three times. His first wife, Catherine Edith, née Nicoll, whom he married in Brisbane on 6 June 1931, died four months later. His second marriage, in Brisbane on 16 January 1936 to Marjorie Edna Dunstan, ended in divorce in 1949; they had three sons. His third wife Isla Hurworth, née Madge, whom he married at Surfers Paradise on 22 August 1949, survived him with their daughter." - taken from http://www.adb.online.anu.edu.au/biogs/A090123b.htm?hilite=groom
