Angelo Comino Retires


Our dear friend and colleague Angelo Comino worked at the State Library of Queensland for 30 years from the 25th March 1981.  Angelo was the Oxley's Image Orders Assistant responsible for taking care of client photographic orders and payments.  Over the decades researchers and membes of the public got to know Angelo very well. His easy going manner and way with people meant that clients would ask for him personally and the service they received was second to none.

Angelo takes with him a fantastic knowledge of the images held in the John Oxley Library.   We already miss him very much and wish him all the best for his retirement.

I remember when Angelo started in 1981, and had the great privilege of working with him, fulltime, between 1985 and 1990. Angelo, you were always the same gentle, sweet bloke, unfailingly polite and incredibly easy to get along with. Nothing ever seemed too much trouble for you either. My very best wishes to you, Poppi, Cosima and Christina for a long and happy future, and for well-deserved good fortune in whatever path you choose to follow post-John Oxley Library.

Thanks Brian, we'll pass this message on to Ange.
