3 Generations

Three Generations of Our Family

After searching the archives and borrowing a scanner I have managed to get a few images online for us all to have access. we have some great photos some which appear to be very old but I donít have all the names so perhaps you can forward me any that you know - I have some more images but need to find some time to scan them - anyway have a look and let me know what you think - Jennifer

The photographs here are mainly late 1800s to early  1900 per WWI. When you think about it this is the generation which used horse and carts and favorite occupations were needle point and reading polite literature. People sent letters written with foutain pens in copper plate lettering.

These photographs are mainly from the 1920s to the wartime era.  When the world was concerned about about world peace and politics - sound familiar. Most people thought Glenn Miller was cool, caught the train or bus and listening to the radio and going to the pictures was the entertainment of the day. Fountain pens were still probably the rage though type writers were being used in the workplace.

Post war pictures. Shots of those who gave birth to the gen Xers like me. The television was the invented, not every one had one, most people had a car and a morgage for a house on a quarter acre block. Cricket, television and going on holidays was on everyone mind. Letters were written with biros but people also used type writers. A far cry from todays email generation which will no just send a quick note from their computers or if they are more considerate send free ecards which have a special picture or poem.
