Do you recognise these people?

Kate Green Reporter from Dominion Post

Are any of these faces familiar? A reader has given us this original photograph of a group of waitresses on the opening night, in the year 1972, of what is now Leroy's bar on the Plimmer Steps, but was then The Woolshed Restaurant. The manager at the time was Stephen Petty. We'd love to put names to faces, so if you recognise anyone, please let us know!
