William Gambrill. Taken sometime between 1884-1888. This is the only known photo of William.

This photograph would seem to indicate that William Gambrill was a soldier (member) of The Salvation Army (not an employee). It was common at this time for male Salvationists simply adapt their normal street clothes to a uniform by wearing "S's" on their lapels. The "S's" show that the wearer is "Saved" (converted to Christianity) to "Serve" (show God's love in a practical way to his fellow man).

It would seem that William was a soldier of the Parramatta Corps (church) which opened in 1884. These early day Salvationist at Parramatta were met with opposition from ruffians, when they appeared on the street to hold an open air service or when they gathered for worship in rented premises.

Comment from The Salvation Army Heritage Centre, Sydney

This photo was in the possession of Molly Gambrill. The photo is on a tin plate.

The bible William is holding, has it been handed down and does someone have it? If so does it contain handwritten family stuff in it?

Notes from John Ransley say the photo was taken "under the grape vine around the Bank of NSW, Parramatta".
