Looking Back with the Bunyip: Thursday 21st April
Looking back at Gawler’s history through the columns of the Bunyip Newspaper with Janette and Kay Boon from Thursday 21st April 2022. (one day late due to Easter public holidays)
150 years ago, a boiler en-route to the Blinman made news, 100 years ago community singing was reported on, 50 years ago dust was causing concern, 25 years ago an international guest attended the local Anzac March, and 10 years ago archaeology students were hard at work in the district.
The Gawler Now and Then image is of Clonlea Homestead 1920.
