Kim Boughton, daughter of George/ Len Boughton has shared these photos with us. George Boughton had worked for the CHL during the mid 60’s – mid 70’s.

Can anyone tell us who the people in these photos are and perhaps which Hostels where these photos taken?

Hi Len ,
I think the first photo was probably taken at Norlane Hostel as the manager of Norlane is in the photo. Don't take it as gospel though as he could have been transferred and that is another hostel he was in. Very Happy
Not sure about the second photo but the chap on the extreme left looks familiar, though can't think of his name. Sad
Great to see the photos Kim. I do love seeing photos of the people in CHL.

Thanks for that Phyl. Out of interest, where was Norlane Hostel and which fellow was the manager?
I have to say, they are good photos. Thanks Kim.

Hi Len,
Norlane Hostel was in Victoria, and the manager in charge was the chap 3rd from the right standing almost directly under the clock.
Norlane sent a wonderful written tribute about Kim's father.

Hi Len,

Unfortunately I do not know anyone else in the photo's. Phyl is right about the colour photo being taken at Norlane Hostel. The black and white may have been taken at East Hills but don't hold me to that. I was hoping someone else might venture upon the photo's and be able to shed some light. Thanks Len for the opportunity to put the pictures out there.
