Remembering a time when fountain pens flowed
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.
