Here is the first lot of my Coles collection - the cards brought out to commemorate the 1956 Olympic Games in Melbourne. Sorry the images are crammed so close together. It took me ages to photograph the pages, then when I got them onto the hard drive I discovered I had the camera on the wrong setting and the pictures were too big. So I had to reduce each one manually, and then when I posted them here I selected another wrong format so all the photos ran in together - grrrr! If you click on them it will bring the picture closer/make it larger for you to see. I'll see if I can improve on this with the next lot. I've photographed everything in the album but there is too much to post all in one hit, so I'll put some more up in a day or so.

Hi Julie and the other visitors to this blog - and thank you for your comments. Sorry I've been so tardy about continuing to post here, but having just read your comments from earlier this month, I've taken out my albums again and will get busy scanning in the next day or so. I have recently put all my Coles cards in one album, so I may do some cutting and pasting with the blog, and make new posts with the Coles cards so they are all together. Wish I could get hold of that Coles card catalogue! I used to be in the Card collectors society but dropped out a few years ago because I couldn't justify buying any more cards after my collection got into the thousands :-o Thanks again - I'll be back soon!
