This ‘new thing’ is something I care about and it touches memories of my childhood growing up on the Murray River when Albury was our closest big town. (I wrote a bit about that Walwa life here) I’ve just finished documenting (at least an outline) a collection of home movies by an Albury doctor that I’ve transferred from Standard 8 (in low resolution).
You can start here. It’s in 4 parts with a sub menu at the bottom of the page if you want to jump around. I need to do some more research and find his descendants, but it’s a start.
That’s him at left Dr. L.S.Woods.
There’s a moving personal film hiding in here when I can get a 4k transfer. All the original film will go to the ACMI archive.
