Speers Point: Old Service Station


Speers Point GarageToday’s photo is of the old service station on the main road at Speers Point, New South Wales, Australia. I can barely remember a time when this place served as a normal petrol/service station in the conventional sense (in Australia). It was being used as a mechanic’s shop which sold a bit of petrol now and then about the time when this photo was taken.

Inflatable Football


Kevin Matthews, Michael MatthewsThis photo was taken at Speers Point Park in New South Wales, Australia, I believe. It would have been back in the 1970’s and shows my cousin Michael in the foreground and me in the background. It would appear as though a rather strange game of football is underway – being played with an inflateable ball of some description.

Once again the photo was salvaged from slides my grandfather had taken back in the day.
