Re­mem­ber­ing a time when foun­tain pens flowed

Western Times - - NEWS -

THOSE WERE THE DAYS: Us­ing the light from the large glass win­dow, the pho­tog­ra­pher cap­tures Is­abel Som­mer­field, 22, at work in the AWU Charleville of­fice in 1935. Sur­rounded by the tools of the day – black ink, red ink and a scratch nib pen – she is writ­ing up the ledger. Is­abel later mar­ried Bob Ham­mond, a ce­ment and con­crete worker. They made their home at 131 Ed­ward St and their large fam­ily was in­volved with many as­so­ci­a­tions in Charleville. Is­abel died in 1985, aged 72.
