Beatrice's Scanned Slides
January 2011

These slides were among Mum’s things we brought over to The Duckpond.

I bought a new scanner so I could scan them and see what treasures would be unearthed.
Unfortunately the nifty little scanner I selected couldn’t scan mounted trannies,
so I removed them all from their mounts and can hopefully find replacement mounts in order to
restore them to their original condition!

The slides are seen here in chronological order, on four separate pages.

Mum preparing for Philip's 21st birthday party, which was held at Rhodo Den.
Please ignore the underarm split!
From the amount of goodies on the table, she’d been hard at work all day.

Not sure if this was a tranquil moment before the party
or a “thank goodness that’s over” photo

I think that’s Anna’s back - but don’t know the others.

Heidi and I (Cecilia) in my favourite red skirt and the boots I still have!

(the tank itself was a casualty of the 1961 bushfires - along with the laundry and our only toilet)
