Tassie has turned it on today......
there is nothing like clear blue skies
with the odd cotton wool ball cloud!
This Retro Bobble Head Money Box is a rarity.....
usually they are damaged or incomplete but this one is
perfect and very cute!
This is a local Launceston lad who went to WW11.
His name is John Dargan and he was a Corporal
and saw action in El Alamein and Tobruk.
One of his relatives (I think his mum) has gone to the trouble
of sticking an article from a newspaper at the time.
She has also recorded his service number
and his Battalion and Division details.
This is a Hobart lad - Arthur Bowen - we think.
The photo has been hand tinted and is signed by
an Art Studio in Hobart and dated 1907.
He was in the 40th Battalion (Infantry) during World War 1
Rather cute retro Coffee or side table.
This pottery and timber lamp is from the 60's/70's
and was made by an Australian pottery company Rathjen.
Hope this weather continues.....
Have a great weekend!
