Happy 100th: Ailsa Baker on her milestone birthday.

A pink sponge cake with white frosting was the cherry on top for Ailsa Baker’s 100th birthday, which she celebrated with three generations of family by her side.

Mrs Baker (nee Platt) was born on October 1, 1918. 

With balloons, banners and a slice of history plastered together on a storyboard, the great-grandmother’s life was celebrated in memorable historical fashion.

Those were the days: Memories of decades gone by were put together on a storyboard for Mrs Baker.

The resident of IBIS Care at Miranda took a moment to remember many events that happened in her life – from school days to her wedding, all presented in a photographic display made by her family.

In the same year Mrs Baker was born, May Gibbs published Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, and Australia’s first electric train service began.

When she was a young girl, the Law of Property Act was also changed so that women could inherit property on the same terms as men.
