Honeysuckle Creek, August or September 1966



These photos are enlargements from a sheet of contact prints of colour negatives of Honeysuckle Creek. Unknown photographer.

The wattle in flower (see the right hand side of photo 2-2) suggests they were taken in August or September (1966).

The contact sheet has been marked up for use in a publication. It was preserved by Milton Turner, Honeysuckle’s Admin Officer from 1970.

Even though only a contact prints, the images preserved a fair amonnt of detail.
