Old Film:: Work Camp Barber (1940-50s)

Life around the camps and itinerant workers of Tasmania’s West Coast was a difficult life in the 1940s and 1950s. The photograph on this page is scanned from a 6cm x 9cm film negative made by my grandmother Elvie Ruth Bonner (1901-1986). I have no idea where the barber clipped that man’s hair or why my grandmother made this particular portrait – whether the subject was family or friend.

Steven Clark Steven Clark - the stand up guy on this site

My name is Steven Clark and I live in the Derwent Valley in Southern Tasmania. I have an MBA (Specialisation) and a Bachelor of Computing from the University of Tasmania. I'm a mazer & a yeast farmer (making beer, fruit wine and mead as by-products of continuous improvement in my farming practices). I'm a photographer, although my film cameras are currently silent. I do not tolerate idiots. I do not tolerate bigotry. I do not tolerate excuses. Let's be clear, if you sit with my enemies you my are my enemy for life.
