From the Penrith Regional Gallery website:
Do you have any interesting old family photos, films or postcards that you would love to include in our trip down holiday lane? We are keen to include a range of images from 1950s-1970s…
Holiday & Memory
16 Nov 2013 – 23 Feb 2014
This exhibition investigates the annual holiday experience of mid-twentieth century Australia. Dark nights, caravans, winding roads and oversized pineapples loom large upon the horizon, summoning memories of romantic sunsets and eerie shadows. Memories of fun in the sun, surf and bush retreats are accompanied by recollections of Vinyl car seats, cries of ‘are we there yet’ dripping ice creams, flies and Aerogard; all typifying that beloved long, hot Australian summer.
