Bouddi history project now on the internet
Ten years after the Bouddi History Project was launched at Wagstaffe Hall, the collection of pictures is now available on the internet.
"It all started a decade ago," said Wagstaffe-Killcare Community Association president Ms Peta Colebatch.
"There was a day in May 2007 when thanks to Mr David Duffy, the Bouddi History Project was launched," Ms Colebatch said.
"Many people responded to the call and brought themselves and their photographs to the hall," she said.
"An interesting program of entertaining items followed and meanwhile the photos were scanned and that was the beginning of the collection.
"The people present and many others were invited to write and submit their stories and along came more photos.
"Over the years and from many different sources the photos have accumulated.
"Famous events, famous people, local organisations and institutions are represented and ordinary people too.
"There are many family collections included," she said.
To view the collection, search Bouddi Photos Flickr and select Albums to look at the many photos that have been donated to make up the collection.
