Looking Back with the Bunyip: Wednesday 6th January
Looking back at Gawler’s history through the columns of the Bunyip Newspaper with Janette and Kay Boon from Wednesday 6th January 2022
- 150 years ago Gawler’s court house was again making news,
- 100 years ago the Bunyip reported on the effect of the traditional Christmas holiday break in Gawler
- 50 years ago a local farmer and councillor had an eventful week,
- 25 years ago Gliders were making news and
- 10 years ago a local citizen was celebrating a remarkable birthday.
Kay and Janette also discussed the Gawler Then and Now image. This week the photo is of a local Greengrocer and Fruiterer from 1920.
