Artist's Description

In April, 1956, my teacher (Had him from Year 3 to Year 6), in Gouda, the Netherlands, announced to the class that I was migrating to Australia.
Mr Berretty was of Indonesian background.

He explained to my fellow-pupils that I was going to a country where the trees are VERY tall.

(I think that was the one image that we all then had of Australia.)

While I am typing this I can still hear one of them being cut down to size, two houses away.

(It’s 11:05 a.m.. Started at 7 a.m.. There was a lot of tree!)
