About Herbert Harvey BRICKNELL
Born: 23 June 1909 Charters Towers, Queensland, Australia
Died: 29 September 1945 Tram accident in Auckland, New Zealand
Connie’s husband Bruce died in a tram when their two children were still very young. Connie worked for years in a nearby fruit shop and later at a bookshop in Grey Lynn where she lived upstairs. Another tragedy occurred when the shop and home burned to the ground. Connie eventually retired to a small house at Massey, West Auckland. She is remembered by those who knew her for her great sense of humour which made her good company.
