About Me.

A Family Tree researcher for over 30 years and a blogger since 2010, I love to share what I find. This blog has opened up a new way to contact and keep in-touch with both family and friends. It mightn't always be genealogy related and you might not agree with my point of view but I want you to comment, ask questions and look upon this blog as 'friends having a chat'.
Enjoy!

Trove Tuesday, Looking for a Holiday Spot.



Now is the time we are all looking forward to holidays, sun, surf and sand, so I thought why not look for a place to stay?

Port Stephen's is a lovely holiday spot on the north coast of New South Wales, not a place I've been to, yet. I found this article extoling the wonders of Port Stephen's, as a place to holiday at in 1920.

 
I love the comment about "another one or two million ants in the packed trams." What would the writer think of Sydney's trains, now? Not much has changed!
 
 
 
Bye for now,

  1. Enjoyed the ants in packed trams as well. And that other simple but evocative line - "a sniff of the briny". Oh I can relate. :)

    1. Journalists knew how to paint word pictures, back then.
