Another podcast I quite like is the bbc history magazine. They recently went to a weekly format so there’s plenty of listening. It’s all English history so you have to be into that kind of thing. I did have a look around the <a href=”http://www.abc.net.au/rn/podcast/”>radio national</a> podcast page to see if they had any regular history stuff but no go. I’d rather hear AU history but there’s less of it (white, at least) and less people researching it and less people broadcasting it.

Anyway, sometimes there’s overlap like this <a href=”http://cdn.bbcmagazinesbristol.com/bbchistory/audio/BBC_History_29thJul11.mp3″>podcast</a>  from the page <a href=”http://www.historyextra.com/podcast-page”>here</a> on the beginning of the seaside holiday –> the north of England, 19th century. This is one of those cultural things that got picked up in lots of places around the world including argentina etc.

The above photo is of one of my aunts and I guess it might not’ve officially been from a beach holiday but awesome nonetheless. We’ve got a whole bunch of these photos of relis standing next to town signs.

And way back when I was living in Anglesea I remember seeing a photo exhibition of scenes from the 50s in the town. It looked really hoppin’.

  1. Did you notice the composition is excellent?

    the abc news online site led me to a story on a disabled guy in QLD who anonymously photographed thousands of weddings – an amateur – and kept the unlabelled photos hidden so they were not found till he died … and they are just brilliant.
