Photo Avalanche: A last minute reminder

Keeping It All Together

Even though, I thought my photo book was finished this was not quite the case. I nearly forgot to include the school photos! There are often photos that are separate to your main photos or albums that need to be considered if you are trying to put everything in one place. If any are larger than A4 you may need to take them to a photo scanning service or if they are damaged have them repaired or restored.

Consider including:

  • Family portraits
  • Birthday photos
  • Christmas photos
  • Wedding photos
  • Anniversary photos
  • Pre-School photos
  • School photos
  • Sports photos
  • Passport photos
  • Travel photos
  • War photos
  • Newspaper photos
  • Framed photos
  • Friend’s photos
  • Group photos
  • Old Family photos
  • Over-sized photos
  • Other family member’s photos

Remember to also check the back of the photos, just in case there’s a date, list of names or other useful information!!

If your lucky you may even find photos online that include your family members. Here’s one of Bondi Public School that I previously located at the NSW State Archives, Department of Education Photographic collection (1850-1991) that is now available online, and you can order a copy. You may even find your grandparents or great grandparents, as I did!
