In the Beginning
A couple of days ago I was sent an image of a building that is now on the location where the School for the Deaf had its second home.
Here is another image of it.
This photo was taken a lot later than the first image, and comes from the National Trust Database.
I told you about how the school came about in another post, you can read it here. They didn’t start their life in the bluestone that is now belongs to Deaf Children Australia. There were two residences before they were given the land the building was built. This is the second one. The first building, I believe, has also been demolished.
I also have a chronology of F.J. Rose, the founder of the school. If you read this, it will give you a great idea of the history of the school. He was an amazing man, and did so much for the deaf community, he gave them everything he had, quite literally.
Hopefully that has worked.
I have not taken any of the photos in this post. I thought you might enjoy seeing more of the actual history.
Update on the New Camera
Well after proposing that people be patrons to my photography and donate $150 to
help me get a new camera, and in exchange I send them a print, I have received my first patron.
In exchange for her patronage I am going to get Alice Alone at the Tea Party printed as a 14 x 14 inch print, which will be editioned, only 10 available, then it will be dated and signed and sent to her. She is very excited and so am I. I have never had a patron before, so I am really excited to get my first, and hopefully not my last. Only 34 more to find.
