Looking Back with the Bunyip: Wednesday 8th February
Produced by janette on February 16, 2023
Looking back at Gawler’s history through the columns of the Bunyip Newspaper with Janette and Kay from Wednesday 8th February 2023
150 years ago the McKinlay memorial was given the go ahead, 100 years ago a local man had a lucky escape when his ponies bolted, 50 years ago towns around Gawler are set for a boom, 25 years ago Gawler’s own racing car gets off to a good start, and 10 years ago a local service station is cut down to size.
Kay and Janette also discuss their own experiences of living in Gawler.
The Gawler Now and Then image is of the corner of Reid and Jacob Streets pre 1990
