Three Miscellaneous Photographs [Jan. 17th, 2007|07:12 am]
Bob Bain

Kenneth and Mum (Shoeburyness)

Three people from the last ship to take me to Australia. Ivan (from South Africa) Venie (from the USA) and Felicity (from South Africa) 1976

Ivan I knew for several years from 1976 (here) to 1995 when he was last seen in Sydney. I visited Ivan in Mexico in 1993. I was given the full tourist treatment (one week).

Felicity returned to Durban. We exchanged correspondence for a while. I recall taking Felicity on a tour of Melbourne (where I lived for a few months). I recall one of her comments "I've never seen anything like that..." to which I thought "lliving in South Africa I doubt that you would". She didn't fully appreciate St. Kilda beach.

Venie - one of the "forgotten" people mentioned in my posting about dreams of American singer/pianist Blossom Dearie. This photograph was taken on a train on return trip from Canberra. I recall driving down the coast with Venie to view (or not view) a total eclipse of the sun. We sat on a beach miles from Sydney and waited for the darkness. It did indeed go dark but we never reached the exact point where the eclipse could be seen it's totality.
