Wanted: Historic RASC Victoria photos

As I slowly chew my way through the Centre's history based on old local records and the RASC's Annual Reports, there's a puzzling discrepancy... as most of you already know, what's missing are photographs. There are almost none at all, which makes me wonder whether anyone in the Victoria Centre even owned a camera for 50 or 60 years!

I checked out the library at the DAO but, naturally, their pix are mostly professional ones made at the time the Plaskett scope was built and a succession of their top brasses. Sid says there are no photos in his files. Fortunately, our more recent history is well documented, which brings me to the point:

It would be great if any Centre pix in your possession could be given or emailed to me for perusal and possible use. Content info with dates, places and names is very important, if it's available, as is other Centre memorabilia concerning special events, etc.
