From Australia, with love.
My mum is Australian; from a small town called Orroroo in South Australia. This past fall (Australian spring) she went back to the house where she grew up, back to the house where -until recently- my soon-to-be 88 year old grand mother still lived on her own, back to the house that has been in our family since at least the 1880s, and brought me back some cool old things. (That was not the reason for her going, but a result)
As requested, she brought me old maps she could find, and her old cameras. The maps are all of Orroroo, dating from 1935 until 1959. The cameras include a couple of old Brownies (one of them with her name scratched in the top, and the date, 1963), as well as an old folding autographic camera, maybe from the 1920s? Also, a book I can find no information about (including publication date which seems to be printed no where in the book) called The Modern Letter Writer, and it’s an instructional guide on how to properly write letters. (Helloooooo thesis prep!)
Thanks mum: you did good.
