A Photo a Week: Siblings

When Vanda told me about this one my initial reaction was ” I can’t do that!” I didn’t think I would be able to get any photos of siblings at all. I just don’t mix around enough with other people and there was nothing in my archive but I finally found something in an old box of photos while looking for something else. This is a photo I took of my mother and her three sisters. Two of them were visiting and staying with us and the other drove up from another suburb. Pictured left to right are Aunty Audrey, Aunty Tiny, Aunty Daphne and Mum (Carol). They are all long gone but I’m sure they would not mind me using their picture for this challenge. I thought it was a rather nice one of them and they had asked me to take it for them. Unfortunately none of us thought about the awful background in the photo! This photo was taken around 1986 or 87 from memory as Mum and I had not yet moved to Semaphore. img019



I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see
