Tram photo exhibition

With loads of visitors heading to Bendigo over the next few months for the "White wedding dress" exhibition at the gallery, we decided to do a very special Bendigo show with a series of photographs never seen or published before, showing the last days of the tram passanger service through Bendigo streets in 1972. All taken by Gail Tavener (my Mum) who was pregnant with me at the time. Gail Tavener is a well established photographer and artist and this is the first time these photo’s have ever been seen in public. It shows Bendigo streets, some that haven’t changed others are unrecognisable, people waiting in line for their last special ride and conductors doing their work or having a chat also some amazing Easter parade shots. Mostly on Black and White film with some special colour slide prints, there are over 40 captivating images. It’s an amazing collection that I just couldn’t wait to get onto the gallery walls. We only have a small collection online. Please let us know if you cannot make it in for the exhibit and we can send you an email catalogue for orders. All images are for sale and 3 different print sizes are available plus a special canvas option for very large prints. Please get in touch for any information on our email sales@bob.net.au.The exhibition is on now and runs til September the 18th.
