Hi Folks,

I'm afraid I never actually mentioned "early 1800s" ........ as you can see
below I specifically mentioned 1860s and 1870s and we definitely had
photographers in Australia by then. I have wonderful copies of a
daguerreotype of ancestors taken in Sydney in 1858. BUT, I didn't even
claim the photos were takin IN the 1860s or 1870s - in fact it was the 1870s
onewards, when the "children" were in their teens, twenties etc. etc.

So what's your problem Chief? Having a bad day or just like being negative?
Oh well, we did mention photographs, so I guess that's where the negative
attitude comes in? <vbg>

Regards ............ Susie Z
