The Campbell siblings all got together for the first in 30 years. Brian, Jack, Robert (Bob), Graeme and MargaretÂ revisited the home where they grew up and lived in the Campbell House, Jubilee Rd, Ardmona, Victora from 1945-1987 on the Turnbull Brothers Orchard where their dad worked.Â They were joined by many family and friends who travelled from all over Australia for photos at the old house, their old school – Ardmona Primary School and a lunch afterwards.
As I was photographing many funny stories were being shared so I grabbed out my sound recorder and invited them to tell me more as we recorded standing in the old kitchen. You will hear stories of mischief and fun, hessian mattresses, castor oil on Friday nights, the ‘cuts’ and peppercorn on the hands, footie and cricket with the half boy, Darveniza’s wine, orchard stories, school tales and more. They say they themselves they were “always naughty” but boy they sounded like they had some fun. Press play to hear all of this and see some highlights from their photos here below.
