Rippleside paddock & beach,Victoria Aus. late 1950's for clean and colour
« on: Tuesday 18 December 18 06:25 GMT (UK) »
Hello and "Happy Christmas" to the lovely people who give their time freely on this wonderful site and Happy Christmas to all the posters too!   ;D

This photo of Rippleside paddock is not the best, so a bit of a clean and colour would be very much appreciated!   The water is in front of the recreation shed on the left of the photo, and although it's not clear, there's a pier, a bit to the right of the shed.  It's definitely winter, no one is swimming or playing in the park!  We're not positive but think it was taken in the late 50's. 

Kind Regards,  Aussielass

Wiggy, I couldn't make out  the make of the car, I have no idea, I wondered if it was a Holden, but whatever make there was a very  limited selection of colours available.

Thanks Japeflakes for your lovely clean up, it looks great.  As a matter of interest I will post a photo of Rippleside as it is today.  Unfortunately it is taken from a different angle and closer to the water.  BUT nonetheless it shows how times change.

Thanks Pat, the colourisation really defines the park and the beach, it looks terrific, and I've asked my great aunt who owns the photo what type of car it was, and she said a "Peugeot".  So I did a google search, and found a 1958 Peugeot 203 and I think it's one and the same. 

Golly  - thing sure have changed around there now haven't they!!   ;)

Hi Wiggy, what do you think?  Do you think I've got the right model and year?

There's a number plate on the car  :)  GDN 739

There's a similar model (1952) with a similar number plate (GDN 480)  here:

I can remember Rippleside when it looked very much as your first photo shows Aussielass. 

If we were going on a long car trip in that direction, that would always be our stopping place for loo, leg stretch and lunch break.    ;)

That is an interesting car in the foreground. In 1953 Ken Tubman and John Marshall won the inaugural Redex Round Australia trial driving a Peugeot 203, a car with an engine of only 1.3 litres against Holdenís 2.2 litres, a real David versus Goliath. The Peugeotís reputation for ruggedness and reliability saw it go into local assembly in the same year as the race.

The car pictured would have been a later example (twin tail-lights were introduced in 1955). These later models had a standard sunroof, standard roof racks and were one of the first mainstream cars to come standard with synchromesh on all four gears.

Thatís a longwinded way of saying your late 1950s date should be about right.

Anyway, hereís my try.

Cheers,
Peter
