There we are!

Kath Hayes (Rodgers) and Jean Altmann (Goodall) worked with Fletcher's in his Man's Shop days in Liebig St, Warrnambool.  They are now in adjoining rooms in the Lyndoch nursing home in Warrnambool and these photos show the joy in their faces as they look back at old photos found through the FJ Stories project.  They are shown as young women in the 1939 staff photo shown below.  We had so many people through the FJ Stories Project who shared their memories and stories with that look of joy.
