Seventy five year old photographs Roll #14 ... Sydney/Brisbane/Townsville

Following on from roll #13 posted in this thread.

I've been hanging out for this roll because this one has places I actually recognise ... I've stood in the exact spot where one of these photographs was taken!

Personally I think this is a great roll and really shows our lady photographer at her best ... maybe I'm just biased because this is the country I love ... Oz!

Agfa again ... please enjoy ... and comment.

Ah, that is a cool roll for us locals! The view from Mt Coot-tha is still the same but it looks like it may have been a little more peaceful back then. The rodeo shots are great.

These are among the best. Her delight and excitement come across in the pictures.

Can you imagine a group of Vienna socialites at an outback bull-riding competition?

And the Koala looks really impressed about being picked up by some Austrian tourist!

Several good ones in the bunch, Keith. The rodeo shots are interesting- too bad photographer didn't have a 135mm lens.

Keith, will you (and your friend of course) consider making a blurb book with pictures from this great journey?
I am sure that I wont be the only one interested in it.

Fantastic Keith. Where are the shots of the pier taken from? Were they in Darling Harbour or just around Dawes Point from Circular Quay? Reason for asking is I'm trying to work out where my Dad took this (Kodachrome, Agfa Ambi Silette, 50mm Solinar, c.1961)

I was wondering if you had been time-warping? The expression on the critter's face seems to be a cross between should it relax and wait it out, jump and hope for the best, or just vomit and be done with it.

Really hard to pick a favorite in this bunch! I was really intrigued by the studio shot. Was the backdrop supposed to be a special location?

She did like that Koala! I also found the studio shot intriguing.

The Guy with the hat holding the Koala is my favorite...
Now why do we try to ride bulls...??? Leave it to the Pros...
The shot taken at the end of the Pier is a nice historical shot...well, now it is..

Love the studio shot, it sort of represents two eras of photography meeting.
