Artist's Description

For a Redbubble Group, called:

the Family Album ,

I’ve been going through the photos.
.
I was going to scan these separately but after I’d laid them out on the scanner’s glass, they seemed fine, like this.
.
My mother was born in Gouda, in 1917 and passed away, in Padstow (Sydney), in 2004.

Those last little passport photos bring the years’ span from the thirties to about 1980, I guess.

So, what do you reckon? Do I look like her?


Early days in Australia (1956/1957), with Gerda van Hoorn and daughter, Netty.

When my mother and father were engaged. My father holdig the child of his brother. His sister-in-law (Suuz) at the pram. Juul on the right.
( Many years later – See picture on the left, of her on the boat. – my mother would be would be back in the area again. )

My mother with the wife of her eldest brother, when visiting Holland, in 1980.

My mother and I in the migrant hostel, in Villawood.
