THE FAMILY IN 1977

My Story continued

Do you remember those photo albums that had sticky pages with a plastic overlay? They were popular in the 70's and 80's. Well mine have lost the stick and photos are falling out besides the fact that the glue was harmful to photos. So I am in the process of putting the old photos into new albums. While I do that I scan them to make a book of them as well so each daughter can have a copy if they want.

Three and Five



  Sonya's third birthday

 OMG the fashions then??? Safari suit and long day dresses.

 My brother David came over from England to visit us. First he went to Sydney and then he drove my Mum, Dad and Aunt Ada to Brisbane to visit us.

 First photo of my brother and I for years.

It was a long time since we had our whole family together.

  1. My mother has a lot of those same photo albums and yes, photos fall out. Time consuming but great that you are dealing with them.

  2. These are such nice photos brings back memories ! The fashion wearing long dresses comes back ! Or is back. Lots of girls and women are now in long dresses. Blogger doesn't sent the comments in my mail anymore they have a bug, so I have to check in my comment list ! We have a little fan to put on the table but's enough for both of us when watching TV. Otherwise we sit in the dark with windows and shutters closed. Since yesterday we are back to normal temperatures 24/25 °C !

  5. I always like to see the old photos. I watch them and am surprised about the fashion we were wearing indeed. My husband had a bundle of curls on his head and hairy sideburns...

  9. Sweet photos of the girls. Good memories of family visits. Oh yes, I had several of those sticky backed albums and they all had to be redone a few years ago too. Fashions, well, what can I say? Thank goodness they change with time - haha!

    Great idea to scan and make books for your family. They will be treasures for years to come.

  11. Those sticky albums ruined a lot of my photos. I lost quite a few and had to make new albums out of the survivors. I’m sure your daughters are very happy to have scanned copies of these. Beautiful memories!

  15. Yes, I also had some of those older magnetic page albums, Diane, and photos did fall out after many years. Now I have replaced all of them and quite often found replacements at local thrift stores as folks sadly don’t keep photo albums in this age of everything digital.
