April 1997, Spencer Street Station, Melbourne
I was on my way to visit my friend Liarne at the surfing hub of Victoria, Torquay and guess what? I found a photobooth. Aren’t you surprised? Liarne had recently moved from Melbourne to the Surf Coast with her hubby and baby daughter.
Whilst getting my business off the ground, I had helped Liarne in her fledgling ceramics business. At the time we were both suffering very similar health problems. “Corker” as she is affectionately known, was diagnosed with ME about 3 years before I was. The symptoms started around the same time for us both. We were close friends and spent many hours per week together. The theory that ME may be caused by a viral infection, could be the link between our both suffering the same cursed condition. I am sure we shared a lot of germs with each other!
These pics were taken at what is now known as Southern Cross railway station in Melbourne, while waiting for my train to the beach.
