Back in the old days. by Albert

Currently unavailable for purchase

We used this Austin A40 to deliver newspapers for Mister Butler the owner of the News Agency. That’s my brothers and sister in the pic and the blond guy is an old mate.

I do my art work and photography with the aid of Meditation exercises. If you want to try it click here and it will take you to my web site for more help for you to try it.

    A Hills Hoist and a battered Austin A40… can’t get much more Aussie than that!

  • Thanks for stopping by Gary.
    You’ll notice that the Hills Hoist even has a clothes-peg compartment…..can’t get better than that!
    The reason I took this pic is because we had just painted by hand all the car bright blue and put advertising on all the doors and boot and flames coming off the front fenders.

    Love this old beauty. At least, it was a beauty at one time. . . Guess it ran great!
    May I recommend some Groups for this good old pic?
    Classic Cars Worldwide - Blast from the Past - Days Gone By - Nostalgic Art and Photography - Queensland - Creative Spirits of Queensland -
    I’m not sure every last one of these accepts photos, my list’s long and my memory’s short.
    But here they are for what they’re worth— and to me, they’re worth a lot!

    the memories, I mean. . .

  • Thanks Dayonda for the tips on the extra groups…I entered this pic in 3 of them.
    The photo was taken in Sydney so I could not enter the last 2 groups.
