It’s hard to believe it’s that time of year already! Here at Archives Outside we would like to say thanks to everyone who has contributed, commented and read the blog over the past year and wish you all the best for 2012. The blog will be going on a summer hiatus until Monday 30th of January when we will start-up again with a Moments in Time post. However, our photographic fans should fear not. While Can you date this photograph? [Clovelly Beach] was our last formal photo post for the year we are leaving you with a puzzle for the lazy summer days to come.
Joy, luck and love

Can you find “The Stror ‘At Coot”?
By Jenny Sloggett
With apologies to CJ Dennis.
The Kid is looking for the Straw Hat Coot who has been dodging round Doreen; that ‘knock-kneed coot … Wiv ’is cute stror ’at an’ pretty ways!’ forever talking about ‘The Hoffis’. We think we’ve seen him lounging around in The Rocks, but not only there.
Can you help the kid? Is the Straw Hat Coot lurking elsewhere in State Records NSW’s photostream?
