Throwback Thursday : 1978/79

Is the earth spinning faster ?    It’s Thursday again !!!!   … and again, I say, it is such a pity that most of my photographs from the late 1970’s are very poor.   Poor quality film and developing 😦

We moved from a rat infested cottage in Honeydew to a rented house in Randpark Ridge in April 1979.  Much bigger … much healthier !!

The front garden had simple chicken wire fencing overlooking lovely natural bush scattered with Sugar Bushes (small protea trees).  This area is filled with houses now with only Loerie Park left as an open space.  On a regular basis cows were herded to and from their grazing area, to a small-holding not far from the house …
