Rick  Swansborough in the background who took many of the first professional pictures of Kathy pre her time with Skippy and commercial modeling.   Party was at Jane Street, Balmain – in that era the large house was a regular venue.   Three 18 gallon kegs of beer per party, girls admitted free – guys paid for the beer.

Late at night, various celebrity  musicians and dancers would arrive after work and jam until dawn.

Friend in Hand Hotel (in 1971) at 58 Cowper Street, Glebe (featured under a different name in an episode of RAKE in 2015).  Licensee and his son (not shown) were diving companions of Kathy.
