Postcards from your birth place

Edit

This *might* be interesting. Simply post a picture + details from the town/city/village you were born (I'd recommend entering it into google and then clicking images from the top selection to find something)

Here's me

Wettest town in Malaysia, with a lot of 'firsts' including the first railway line. At the market, folk bet on when the first drop of rain will roll the roof each day during the wet season.

Whoever took this photo would have been standing outside the very building in which I was born, in a hippyish 70s homebirth.

postcards-your-birth-place-82d63nkhyjy4.jpgWell there are no postcards of my town as it is dried up now. I have however found 2 vintage ones. It was quite charming at one time.

Re: Postcards from your birth place

Nugget Point. Wasn't born there exactly,but close enough.
Many happy days spent poking about around the whole area (when not being blown off the cliff face, or getting yelled at by sea lions!!).

In the other pic, you get to meet some of our closest neighbours
