2022 will be our second year printing Lost Manly keepsake calendars.
I am thrilled to bring you two calendars this for 2022 each filled with 14 photos from our Lost Manly archives. Our Vintage calendar titled 'Seven Miles from Sydney' brings our iconic historic playground to life, while our second calendar titled 'My Manly' showcases talented Lost Manly member Sue Halford's stunning Manly sunrise and sunsets, which have a deeply personal story behind them, which she has briefly shared in the group in 2021. The cover pic captures Anzac Day sunrise over Manly while double rainbows over Shelly will delight you in December.
Saving our history and heritage is what Lost Manly and the Northern Beaches is all about and the photos I've chosen for our first vintage calendar highlight the many iconic places, faces and spaces that Manly was known for. The images have been carefully selected as ones that are iconic and nostalgic, evoking memories and feelings from back in the day. The warmth of nostalgia evokes gratitude for having shared such a wonderful place to be born and raised and shows everyone else what Manly and the Northern Beaches used to be like before it was lost.
These calendars are truly a wonderful keepsake of iconic images of our unique and cherished history, you will be able to give as gifts or keep for yourself to hang on your wall. My mum Marie and I sent calendars to each other every Christmas for the past 20 years, from my travels and living in Norway, and she sent me Northern Beaches calendars from Humphrey's and with her recent passing in July 2021, it's left a void, which I hope I can through sharing my calendars with you.
Sue's calendar was also born out of her deeply personal loss with the passing of her father in 2021 also, amidst the chaos of lockdown and all she could do at that time was wake up early and go for a walk before sunrise. And it was here that she captures some of the most inspiring sunrises and sunsets of our beloved Manly. Sue's stunning collection of 14 photos, titled "My Manly" will truly captivate your senses.
"Out of great suffering comes great art", I've seen it read...
Sue and I have come together to bring you these fabulous 2022 calendars; to offer you both old and new, vintage and contemporary.
We anticipate the calendars to arrive at the Lost Manly Shop in Dee Why by end of September. All calendars will be shipped from Dee Why in a waterproof tracking satchel from Australia Post. Each satchel holds up to three calendars, so any more ordered will need another satchel. Orders of four or more will receive free postage.
Sunday is the first day of the week in the calendars (yes its a thing, somebody once asked).
