bullet  Events

• Laraine and Charlie are seen here, out and enjoying a function.

• Charles is driving the dinky car, while his little brother, David, sits on the bonnet.

They are playing at their Wilmington Street, Ayr, house.

In the background is the swan rocking chair made by their Grandad, Murdoch McLean.

• Charles can be seen on the bonnet of the popular toy car, while young David is in the driver's seat, and Merle is pushing hard.

• Charles has left us with a wonderful collection of photographs that he took as a child, kindly forwarded to us.

Here we see a fine example of a simple, unadorned photograph, of an elegant bottle tree, we think.

Perfectly framed for our family tree.

• Charles is seen here being a dare-devil on his motor bike.

• This photograph was entitled by Charles, the photographer, as "Dina and I". The photograph was taken at Charles' grandparents house, 57 Aherne Street, Hermit Park, Townsville.

• "David" taken at 57 Aherne Street, Hermit Park, by his older brother, Charles.

• "Rusty, Skipper and I".

• This photograph of Barry Shephards was possibly taken by Charles. It remained in his photograph collection for his entire life.

• "Me"

• These two photographs, one taken by Charles and one by his unknown friend, appear to have a zoo in the background - a cement wall, and a tree with branches lopped, and some sort of a roof.

It appears that both chaps have cameras, Charles appears to be holding the ends of a strap in each hand, and his companion has a camera around his neck.

• Charles is seen here at the entrance to a bushy path.

• Charles William Smallwood about 1946 on the steps at 56 Dornoch Terrace, Highgate Hill.

• 17 Ahearne St

Dear Joanie

How are you love. I bet your jealous because your not up here in the warm sunshine. How's Bill. Does he still play football. We've finished our football (match crossed out) season, now we're playing (cricket). We finished our exam & I came from 22nd last exam to 6th this exam. What do you think of me. Joanie would you please send me a picture of myself as I want to send it to “Butch” Malcom McCallum? Hows the weather? I'll bet its lovely and warm? do you still build snowmen.

• Excuse me finishing of so soon but I've got to write to my girlfriend in Brisbane or shell think I've forgotten her so Good-bye.

Your squirt of a mischievous brother.
PS Write soon or else you'll sign your ...(death warrant? - daggers)

• This photograph of Charles shows him sitting in what looks like a sawn-off tree trunk, and displaying a magazine or a book of some kind.

Any clues?

• Charles at one time, apparently, had a sheep, and a small black dog. His brother David, can be seen here, with the sheep and the little dog on the sheep's back.

• Charles is seen here, with his sheep, and with the little black dog, on the sheep's back.

• Charlie came to the Weddell family home, at 12 Purnell Street, Zillmere, for a holiday. In Claire's words “... and he hired this bloody horse ... ”.

Charlie can be seen here, sitting on the aforesaid "bloody horse", with Ellen and Paul watching from the front fence of their house.

• Charlie can be seen here on his visit to the Weddell household, in about 1957. In the background can be seen what looks like a swing-thing, the "backyard dunny", and an antenna that John Weddell used in his radio and electronics research.

• Charlie is seen here, at a family wedding, with his family.

From left, Arthur, Charles, Charlie, Merle, Gertrude, David, Joan, Claire, Ross.
