Looking Back with the Bunyip: Wednesday 9th August
Looking back at Gawler’s history through the columns of the Bunyip Newspaper with Janette and Kay, returned from her adventures, from Wednesday 9nd August 2023
150 years ago the citizens of Wasleys were taking steps to erect a new church, 100 years ago another case of diphtheria is raising concern in Gawler, 50 years ago local residents call for a Dog Catcher to address the problem with roaming canines, 25 years ago neglect of a local historical icon is described as disgraceful and 10 years ago the restoration of the historic canopy is put on hold.
There was no Gawler Now and Then image this week.
