History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

Happy Birthday

Let's have a cheery post, shall we? Yesterday was my sister's birthday, so today's post is a belated birthday celebration. Wonderful photographs of birthday parties-- again from Australia, actually! Australian photograph archivers like the same things as me, I suppose.
