chool pics

The Swinburne Visual Archive (Historical photographs relating to Swinburne University of Technology) joined Picture Australia in February.
You need to go to this latter repository to search and find more information about the uncaptioned photos

For instance, to discover who this man is

Or that these strange objects are actually part of a three blade propellor mould made in cores

That this mysterious group is actually a
Bank of N.S.W./Ansett Airlines of Australia Travel Bursary presentation

I haven't yet cross-referenced the strange sequence with television

Or this

Many images seem to work uncaptioned.

Comments: chool pics

thanks for the post Boyton, tried finding some images of Mile End in Adelaide where I live now but the state library of SA has ugly copyright numbers on their digital images. Found a few images of the nearest town where I lived in victoria (underbool). This one is not much to look at but has some personal meaning for me as my nephew works as a mechanic for the otherwise family business that runs the garage that fronts the described historical buildings.

Sorry Boynton couldn't seem to get links to work in your comments. The link was to image and text about Glosters Garage Underbool

html is not enabled so embedded links vanish, but Glosters Garage Underbool sounded intriguing -

And I searched for Underbool in Picture Australia. Not sure how long the 'results page' lasts - but I think this link should:

Thanks Boynton thats the right link. I liked "Father and Son" and "Pines" images too. I've always admired the disorganised character that native pines have in comparison to the exotic ones.
