I've found the photos, I'll scan them as soon as I can. I also have faded
copies of articles from the Melbourne Sun and the Melbourne Age, both on
11th June 1975. I have a print of the photo used with the Age story, I have
1 of the 2 photos used in the Sun. I'll retype the text of the 2 stories if
you want it.


The photos are in my folder in the Files section
They are Frankston1 to Frankston6. No 1 is stamped "Copyright The Age" on
the back, the other 5 are stamped "Koala Studios 1 Seaford Road Seaford
