Some more of Papa's stash from the late 40's early 50's.

Freaky easter bunny window display in Sydney

The Leura postman. Leura is in the Blue Mountains area of Sydney

The local carrier. Who has a very uncomfortable looking seat.

Aww, and a little new born. They're crazy when they feed, they push really hard. Every year we'd have a few baby lambs to feed. Ones that were seperated from their mothers or the mothers didn't want them. We'd have to bottle feed them and they'd just about push you over in the frenzy. This little guy hasn't had his tail cut off yet.

  1. What delightful old pictures. I love the postman and the little lamb. Wow. Great that you have kept these pictures!!!

  2. Incredible how different the world was just 60 – 70 years ago. I wonder sometimes how good we actually have had of that kind of fast development….

    Different times for sure. Bet no one locked their doors back then.

  4. cat Says:

    Yeah, the postman and the carrier are great aren't they. It's not that long ago, yet it seems like a million lifetimes ago.

  5. Emjay Says:

    I love the little dog looking on in the postman shot – cute. Does the easter bunny have an easter egg as his bicep?

  6. Nancy Says:

    They're all fun but I especially love the Easter Bunny. I can imagine that photo appearing in something like a New Yorker magazine from that era.

  7. It really does seem like long long ago when they delivered mail that way. Just think of the changes someone that is 100 years old has seen!

  8. cat Says:

    Yes, it's wrapped on with tinsel and that looks like a pile of presents on the right. He's like a combination of easter and christmas

  9. cat Says:

    He's probably sitting in some basement somewhere. Oh I just realised he's a magician. I thought he just had a stick!

  10. cat Says:

    Yes my grandmother lived into her 90's and she saw a lot of change in the world over that time.

  11. It would be wonderful to have a record of what someone that age remembers, wouldn't it!
