But I am sure that this is small in the scheme of things, but I am still building... But that is the materialised stuff... I still remember being asked if I would like to help crew the PS Marion from Goolwa to Mannum, sadly I had to say no because I had school in 3 days. Doesnt school just ruin everything... grrrrrrrr.

Now I have another 3 magnets and 4 postcards and 2 books!! The books are 'Where were you when the waters broke' (1956 Floods in SA) and one about the history of Morgan SA's largest inland port.

Well, the latest paddler collectable is a book from the 70's about the paddlesteamers, the photos are fantastic (worth scanning and posting I think) and I cant leave out the hull of the SJ..
