Last week we kicked off the series of photographs taken by Old Canberra. He received a Kodak Box Brownie camera for Christmas in 1948, took these photos immediately afterwards, and has just got to scanning them.
This is the first of the old ones and he explains it so:
- I have attached one I took from Red Hill lookout after riding and walking up the dirt road to get there. You can see Arthur Circle in the left foreground and Russell Hill where the offices now are. I think the population would have been around 8,000 in 1948
