My mum and dad had some of the best mates you could ask for - these photos from Rockdale CYO late 1950s tell the story

One of dad's best mates Pat Ginman put this video together.   It's a real insight into a now unrecognisable Australia.  Mum and dad's social circle was centred on the Rockdale Catholic Youth Organisation - they seem so innocent and naive looking back now.   A time of simple pleasures and powerful principles.
