This identity of the woman gardening has been variously identified - depending on the date ascribed to it - as showing either Evelyn Dunbar (whom Mahoney courted in the mid to late 30's) or Dorothy Bishop (whom Mahoney married in 1941). The setting is Oak Cottage, Wrotham Kent, where Mahoney lived from 1937 onwards.
