ok – so here are my brother and sister fishing. It would be at dee Why I'd say, we always went for holidays there. This was when Mum went through her stage of liking big bows in small pieces of hair. It's not emjay – we have another sister.



And here is Uluru. We would have called it Ayers Rock then though. 



This would be in Sydney. I love this – love how everyone dressed. Everyone dressed up to go shopping. You can see the old red and black taxis there.



I don't know where this was taken but it is another of my favourites. All that brick with the splashes of red and then the woman walks in.



A good little shop to have a poke around in



And this would be Wales. Try fitting that address on your envelope.

    LOL – yes our "other" sister had lovely white hair. When we went on holidays we used to get dressed up to go from Dee Why into the city for shopping or the movies!

    I remember Mum getting dressed up just to go into town Saturday mornings. Hair in rollers, step ins, full makeup

    I love these slides Cat..I think I was born in the wrong era

  4. Emjay Says:

    I think they wore step-ins to golf too!

    Originally the town had a shorter, easier to pronounce name:

    In the 1860s, more syllables were added to attract more visitors to the
    town. Name allegedly conjured up by the village
    council for the privilege and reputation of having the
    longest railway station name in Great Britain.
    Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch means; "St.
    Mary's Church in the hollow of white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and
    Church of St. Tysilio near the red cave."Name's usually shortened to Llanfair P.G. Because inquiring minds need to know.

    Great shots. I love that one in the brick courtyard too!

    No wombats, no koalas, no roos… the AU pictures are clearly fakedNow think about it… if we look back and are impressed at how people are dressed, what will people be dressing like in 50 yrs to make this era look "fancy" by comparison?!?

  10. cat Says:

    lol – who knows what they'll be getting about in – thats a scary thought, maybe we'll just be remembered as the unfancy mob

  11. cat Says:

    thanks Steve – yes just wish I knew where it was, he didn't mark his photos very well.

    Thanks for another batch of great pictures. I'm especially fond of the shopping shot. I've seen similar pictures of my downtown taken in the 50s…with everybody all dressed up in dresses/suits and hats doing their Christmas shopping. All the hat stores have gone out of business and downtown is now pretty much dead.

    yes, it used to be a big thing on Saturday mornings, get dressed up and go to town. I would have liked to have been around in the 50's I think.
