Redcliffe remembers the war years 1939-1949

Broken link

Redcliffe is a coastal town north of Brisbane. In this website the local public library presents short spoken recollections by 17 residents. It evokes the life of a small town and its rural hinterland, affected by the Second World War,

…and of course we could always swim on that lovely beach, because in those days the beach around Redcliffe Jetty was really sandy, it was a lovely sandy beach, it was just great for swimming… From the reminiscences of Heather Bradford.

The website is a companion to a book of the same name. The ToadShow studio designed and built the site using Macromedia Flash. Each spoken narrative is matched to an animated se­quence of photos. The black and white photos have been colour­ised, and have the flavour of 1940s postcards.

It’s a straightforward and effective piece of story-telling.
