Photograph showing Pablo Diaz waiting at a tram stop on the corner of Queen and Bourke Street, Melbourne, circa 1980. The Diaz family emigrated from Chile in 1974 to escape the political regime there.

Pablo's mother Alicia took him to the Myer Store, where they saw an exhibition on movies. The overalls he was wearing were his good clothes to go out in. The Diaz family had been in Australia for 6 years, having emigrated from Chile to escape the political regime there.
