Howdy Margaret

Thought you might be able to help me ID theses roses. They are from a very old house here in Deniliquin and I was told by the owners that they would be minimum 80yrs old.

The first and the third one I like, but the third i think has something which could be dynamite

the first one does look like Elina to me but probably is no where near the age you mention

Thanx Sueanne, but if you look at the ends of the petals they flip over , similar to the third pink rose picture, Elina does'nt do that

Can we get photos of the leaves, prickles, stems, receptacles, sepals, stipules, etc too Warren?

Aargh, I have the wrong sort of visual memory to be able to ID roses, especially HTs! I know what the name of the rose should look like, so I can spell, but as for the rose itself... If you add the photos Simon suggested I'll ask others to look. We need to know whether they climb. I assume they're repeat-flowerers? Much scent?
By the way Bruce, the "Tasha's Tarlee Pink" that the shearer told us was > 70 years old has been IDed by David Ruston as Sylvia (1970s). Wonderful picking rose and very floriferous, but not Heritage for a good few years yet.

Thanks Margaret, I have "Sylvia" as well and the "Tasha's Tarlee Pink" certainly look alike. They are both a little leggy here, very fragrant and a nice clear pink which is my favourite colour. Heritage or not it is still a great HT.
