IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN!
We've posted this photo before but it's been sooo cold it seems a good time to put it here again. Our catalogue has dated it as 1902 and it's interesting to note the windmill and tank at the bottom right of the pic.

Jenny there was snow on mt sugarloaf the year the twins were born I reckon it's as cold this year just no snow yet?!

There are no trees then???

If you look closely, you can see “the castle” in Campbell St.

Our house in picture. Must have been built prior to 1902

It felt as of it would snow today.you can see the shape of Mt.Leura & Sugarloaf.!!

The windmill and tank probably belong to the Leura Hotel

It’s a wonderful photo with Keeyuka watching over the town

What year was that

Amazing

Well, at least our book on Scottish settlers is moving. It's selling well, which is very satisfying, and we are still getting enquiries as to where to buy it.

Cost is $35 per book plus $15 postage for up to four copies.

NO SUNDAY OPENING FOR JULY
Sorry everyone, but we are in the process of having a unisex-toilet installed which is accessible WITHOUT going out into the COLD, wet, muddy back yard! BLISS!
Hope this doesn't inconvenience anyone too much.

What must be will be

INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION FOR MAREE BELYEA!
Those wonderful street signs have been recognised globally! Of course, Maree reminds us that the project was the work of the whole Camperdown Lions Club and the medal belongs to them all. However, we know the amount of work that she, personally, put into the research and historical accuracy of the signs and don't doubt that she's the right person to have received the honour.
Well done Maree! (again!)
And thanks to the Camperdown Chronicle for publicising this prestigious event!

A HAPPY CDHS CUSTOMER
We had a request for a photo or information about Carlee Wilson who was Miss Camperdown 1991. It was from a work colleague who wanted to present the picture to Carlee as a surprise at her farewell party from work. A search of our collection of old Camperdown Chronicles provided the photo below. On Friday, we received the picture of the big presentation. It's good to be able to help - and to make lots of people very happy!

THANKS TO 1,000 PEOPLE!
Hooray! We've reached 1,000 'likes' which is a pretty good milestone. So, many thanks to all those people who share our posts and express their interest in what we report here.
It's always fascinating to find out what people are most interested in. One of our biggest and most watched posts was the construction of the swimming pool which brought forth many memories of hot days lying on the burning concrete - and 'watching the boys'! Another was more recent; it was the picture of the clocktower repairs which had 5,877 hits within about a week with lots of comments about the new and old ways of doing things.
