A Piece of Family History
Aren’t they gorgeous!? I was so excited when I saw these antique canning labels that my sister had scanned in from the originals and added to our family historical records on www.ancestry.com.
Labels are available singly or as a set HERE.
Labels are also available as DIGITAL DOWNLOADS

Cribbie, as the locals called it, encompassed both Cribb Island and Jackson’s Estate. It was a small area bordering Moreton Bay, south of what is now the Kedron Brook Floodway. In the 1970s the land was resumed by the Federal Government, to make way for the new Brisbane Airport.
