Betty Viccars (daughter of Muriel and Jo Carroll) took the time to describe her world growing up in Fyansford back in the early to mid-'90s. This digital publication is taken directly from an original copy of a text typed by Betty back in the early 1980s. See detail in her son's blog Gary Viccars' Page.

The original flipbook was a small book with a series of printed images which create the illusion of motion when the pages of the book are rapidly flipped. 

The modern e-flipbook is a digital interactive version that looks just like a printed publication, with pages that can be flipped and turned. It preserves the regular 'appearance' of a paper book but includes interactive elements.

e-flipbooks are more 'traditional'  and engaging then the customary flowing-down-the-page       PDF-type document.

WOW! A wonderful tribute to all who froze momentarily or gathered to be so recorded for posterity - and for their families to better remember them.        Andreas Makarewitsch

Each flipbook May take a minute or more

to download the very first time.

Subsequent viewing takes less time.
