“Margaret Saddler and Nancy Gemmell are sisters, daughters of C. M. Hambridge, a former Surveyor-General of South Australia.  They spent their girlhood “bashing around in the scrub at Mt. Lofty” and this undoubtedly helped to develop their interest in the gum trees of South Australia.  Mrs. Saddler, an active and practical conservationist and former secretary of the Nature Conservation Society of SA, lives in the foothills suburb of Stonyfell in a setting dominated by magnificent eucalypts.  Mrs. Gemmell, who studied for six years under Ivor Hele at the SA School of Arts, is the wife of Strathalbyn grazier and is justifiably proud of the extensive garden which surrounds the “Springfield” homestead.”
