This clip is part of an article from an Australian newspaper. The artist is a well known fellow, long passed, whose art is selling for big prices. It (obviously) is a rural scene during times of drought.
I would guess the motor car is a T and one will notice it is a RHD which is Australian and many other countries as well of course. And below is a cut and paste (part of) from the newspaper.

Lynne Clarke, daughter of renowned Australian artist Russell Drysdale, has a vivid memory of ‘going to the pictures’ as a young child in the 1940s.
“I remember seeing Pinocchio and having nightmares for years,” the 82 year-old says. “I found it horrifying. I didn’t like going to the cinema much.”

Russell Drysdale 1941's Going to the Pictures (detail).

I know many things,
But I don't know everything,
Sometimes I forget things.

And there are times when I have a long memory. is offline   Reply With Quote
