Looking Back with the Bunyip: Wednesday 27th April
Produced by janette on May 7, 2022
Looking back at Gawler’s history through the columns of the Bunyip Newspaper with Janette and Kay Boon from Wednesday 27th April 2022.
150 years ago, a dead pig was causing a nuisance in Gawler, 100 years ago the arrangements for Anzac Day were being reviewed, 50 years ago plans were afoot for Willaston Sports Ground, 25 years ago a local army depot was being sold, and 10 years ago Briant Mahony known to Gawler as “the man with the dog” was honoured.
The Gawler Now and Then image is a group of Phoenix Foundry Workers, May 2 1896.
