Memories of Queenscliff
Eddie Loughnan was heavily involved in the music of Queenscliff in his younger days as a band leader and musician. He is a great story teller as we discovered during History Week last year and has some terrific slides to illustrate his talk.
Eddie will relate his recollections of growing up in Queenscliff and his observations of what he saw and heard as he shows images from his extensive collection of 35 mm coloured photographic slides of his home town in the 1950’s and beyond.
