GROUP HISTORY
We would like to sincerely thank the following Flickr members for their contribution to the steady growth of this group.
The group was initially founded back in 2007 by Luke-rative, being known at that time as 'Forster Tuncurry'.
With the group then at 17 members and a few hundred images, in mid 2010 Old'n Days took on the role as the new group administrator and began the process of building the GROUP IMAGE INDEX (Completed Dec 2012).
Old'n Days changed the groups original name of Forster Tuncurry to :
Beautiful Great Lakes - Manning & Gloucester Regions of NSW
Old'nDays closed their Flickr account on 28th April 2015 but handed over to Black Diamond Images with mypix4u2c coming on board in late 2015 as an additional administrator.
