Gould Books - Advertiser 19 Sep 1985

DESCRIPTION: an article about Gould Books (as our family business was known as back then) in “The Advertiser” newspaper, featuring Alan and Anthea Phillips
DATE: 19 September 1985
CURRENT OWNER OF THE ITEM: Anthea Phillips (nee Hannaford)
STORY/ABOUT: This cutting actually belonged to my grandma Evelyn Hannaford (nee Randell), I can tell by the handwriting, and am very thankful not only that she kept it, but that she also dated it. And as is usual with bits-and-pieces of hers, I found this cutting in the middle of a random book.
I know our business has been in the newspaper a few times over the years (I must find and scan the others), but I don’t actually remember seeing this one, so it was a great find.

Christmas card from Edwin Winter

DESCRIPTION: two postcards
DATE: 1st one 29 August 1931, 2nd one probably in the 1930s
CURRENT OWNER OF THE ITEM: Valda Phillips (nee Winter)
STORY/ABOUT: My great grandpa Otto Rafael Winter was born in Finland, and while he became a seaman and eventually jumped ship and settled in Australia, one of his brothers Edvin moved to Sweden. After Otto left Finland when he was about 20, they never saw each other again, but it’s fabulous to know that they did keep in touch.
These two items are very dear to my grandma (Valda) and it is a direct connection with her Finnish heritage, and with an Uncle that she’s never seen other than in photos.
