A small walk through the years

Today we went looking for a wonderful house we found in an old photo from Rob's small amount of family treasures....but let's start from the beginning.

When rob was 18 years old the last of his grandfathers generation was going into care and while he went to clean out the house in Belgrave he didn't know his uncle was going to burn everything in the back yard. The uncle and his wife has come down from Sydney and like many others before him they neither wanted the junk, or had time to give it away. So very few things were saved.

One photo album of very old photos were given to his mother and she kept them all these years. One photo was of a home in Malvern and so began the journey up to this day.

I will continue this story in a few days on our computer so that we can happily show both the photo from over 110 years ago to the ones we took today.
