Having an e-services card allows you to add comments and suggestions to information contained in our catalogue records. You can also apply for a guest log-in if you don't have one of our cards.

There have been many instances where the online feedback we have received from clients, and the tags they have created, have added value to our records and/or corrected any mistakes in our captions.

One recent example of valuble feedback occured when Mrs Nancy Hodge wrote a comment in connection with an image on our catalogue of "two unidentified girls pictured in the bush during a bushwalking expedition, Rathdowny."

She wrote the following:

"This is a significant photo - the first two ladies to climb Mt Lindesay in March 1931. The caption could be: Jean Easton(L) and Nora Dimes (R) on top of Mt Lindesay, 15 March 1931. The first women to climb Mt Lindesay. Photo taken by A. A. (Bert) Salmon. The late N M Dimes was my aunt. There are more photos of that 15 March 1931 trip."

Thanks for your comments Nancy and the clippings you included from the Beaudesert Times and the Brisbane Courier covering the event. It will now be clear to those who view this image just how significant it is.

Nora Dimes was the daughter of Nora Elizabeth and Thomas Dimes of 'Rakehills' Beerwah. Young Nora Dimes reguarly climbed in the Glass House Mountains as Mount Beerwah was close by to the family home.

I an reading my Father's{Harrison Josebh Payne] personal account of climbing Mt Tibrogargan at Xnas 1931 with Bert Salmon & Ken Rogers. He mentions the Initials of Nora Dimes & Jean Easton havig been placed on the wall of a cave on the east side of Mt Tibrogargan I also have a newspaper cutting of that 1931 Mt Lindsay Climb!
