Photographer's Note

I remember when:

Pizzas weren't delivered but milk was.
Newspapers were delivered by boys on their bicycles.
We had a dress code at school and boys hair could not be over the ears. Shirt had to be tucked. Girls' skirts could not be above mid knee. Although I remember many got away with it especially if they had decent looking legs
No convenient stores, we got our last minute necessities at the local store. I remember you could run a bill at the store and pay on payday which many took advantage. This was before credit cards became popular.
Listening to my transistor radio.
Cars without turn signals which resulted in using hand signals to make a turn.
Photos were taken with a film camera & large flash bulb.
Smoking was suppose to be cool and was depicted in movies in a positive manner which resulted in candy cigarettes being sold for kids to emulate adults.
Coffee shops, restaurants, and milk bars (milk bar is a term used in some parts of Australia for suburban local shops or general stores) had jukeboxes.
Playing records and how they would skip if the record was scratched or because the needle started wearing out. We then had to place a coin on top of the arm to keep the record from skipping.
The old black and white TV that took forever to warm up before you saw the picture.
I also remember when ladies wore stockings, long before panty hose were introduced.

This was taken near the Flinders St. Railway station, along the Yarra River & opposite Southbank.

Scheetrin is a word coined by Paolo (paololg) meaning a small skeleton.
