another blast from the past - photos of Lae from the 50's and 60's.

Have just got back from visiting my Dad in the Blue Mountains and came home with a treasure trove of memorabilia: some postcard photos Mum sent my grandmother over the years we lived in Lae and a complete 1966 PNG phone book, which unfortunately would be too hard to read if I reduced it down to a size small enough for this forum. It certainly triggered some memories for me, though, and if anyone else is interested they can get in touch with me personally.

Meanwhile, here are the first of the photos, most of which are self-explanatory.

Some more Lae photos. Thanks for the link to the new photo page, BTW, Aussie. When it's up and running and you have a link to it on your main page I'll certainly make use of it.

Regards, Wendy

Photo 8 - again, self explanatory. This one has special significance for me as it's where my husband first took me to dinner when we started dating.
