"Sunny Memories" Album of Catherine Janes Jones (nee Ferguson)

Blue cloth bound album, “Sunny Memories” on top left-hand corner of cover, initials "K. J." at bottom right-hand corner of cover. Catherine Jane Ferguson married Charles Syndey Jones (1861-1896) on 28 Oct 1889 in Melbourne. They had three daughters: Ella Maud (born 9 Mar 1891), Enid Frances Sydney (born 31 May 1892) and Kate Elaine Sydney (born 27 Apr 1895, also known as Katie, Kit or Kitty). After the death of Sydney Jones, Catherine married Joshua Thomas Bell.

This album contains 194 photographs dated 1897 to around 1901. There are twenty pages. Photographs have been pasted to the inside and back covers of the album. First five pages have captions with dates (1897 to 1901) and initials [of photographer?]. There are photographs of the family, children, Mount Morgan, 'Kenmore' (residence of John Ferguson, in Rockhampton), Rockhampton botanical gardens, 'Killin' (now called Yungaba, residence built by John Ferguson for Catherine Janes Ferguson and her husband, solicitor, Charles Sydney Jones), the Grandstand at the Rockhampton race course.

From page five, the last captioned page, photogaphs are taken when Catherine and her children travelled to Lenzie, Scotland, and include photographs from the trip there, activities while overseas, and what appears to be photographs from the trip back to Australia.

The Sunny Memories album was produced by Percy Lund & Co. and allowed photographs or photographic scraps to be inserted into the album. It was produced from 1898.
