Finding Memories #7

By rosie42  
~ Pam & Colin ~

It was a journey by sea of several weeks when in 1961 Pam and Colin emigrated from England to Sydney. They knew almost nothing of Tasmania before moving again in 1968 to Hobart, with their two sons, so that Colin could take up a position at the University.

When first married, Pam and Colin shared a modest two roomed flat in London where previous occupants had painted the walls around existing furniture, leaving behind shadowy shapes of cupboards and sideboards from days long past. Money was short and Pam recalls sewing together carpet square samples to make throw rugs, deftly using a curved surgical needle and a ball of string to fashion the stitches.

~~~

This series features people who have made Tasmania their home since moving from far flung places, each a stranger to me until the day we met to make the images. Each shared with me an amazing life story and it's been an absolute pleasure to spend time listening to their memories, some of which accompany the images here.
