Looking Back with the Bunyip: Wednesday 30th November
Looking back at Gawler’s history through the columns of the Bunyip Newspaper with Janette and Kay from Wednesday 30th November 2022
150 years ago the Bunyip reported on an outbreak of Pleuro-Pneumonia, 100 years ago changes were afoot for Gawler’s sanitary system, 50 years ago a Tanzanian school received an electric fence from Gawler, 25 years ago the paper featured an amusing story about a case of mistaken identity, and ten years ago Ivan’s Act of Vandalism was creating ripples in the community.
The Gawler Now and Then image is of the Gawler Gasworks, 1982.
