|Eva Pilgrim with her Box Brownie|
Easter 1928 - Age 18
There are albums and albums full of Gran's photos. The old albums and photos taken with the Box Brownie in the earlier years are my favourite. She was naturally a great photographer! Anyone who reads my blog regularly will have admired many of her photos, which provide an insight into a different time.
Gran received several awards at the Nhill Agricultural Show for her photos. She also had many photos published in the Weekly Times. I am looking forward to further issues of the Weekly Times being digitised, so that I can view them on the National Library of Australia archive Trove.
Many of the earlier, so called colour, photos in her albums have turned pink or orange. In later years she purchased postcards on her travels, rather than taking photos.
I would love to be able to talk to my grandmother now! We have more in common than I ever realised! Maybe my love of travel, photography and family history is genetic? Did she recognise that we have a lot of similarities? I will never know!
