Breaking: Former US first lady Barbara Bush has died, aged 92. As First Lady from 1989 until the start of 1993, she was a popular national figure known for her sometimes blunt talk and self-deprecating wit. Her husband, George HW, was the 41st president. Her son, George W, was the 43rd. She’s pictured here in Canberra with her husband, ahead of their meeting with their ‘old friend’ Bob Hawke. It was one of the rare moments on the Bush tour of Australia when George and Barbara Bush were not surrounded by security guards or guests. Photo taken by Tim Clayton, January 3, 1992.
