George Johnston headed the London bureau for the Australian Sun newspaper. He assigned me to cover various small stories and I welcomed the opportunity to use my camera, knowing I would be paid for my work. One day when talking to him about where I wanted to go in photojournalism, he said, 'This town's not too big. You can lick it if you put your mind to it'.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
