Old Ads From Forster Bridge Opening 1959


Recommended Posts

I picked up a souvenir programme yesterday of the Forster-Tuncurry bridge opening. The programme contained not only yesterday's opening, but the original programme from 1959 and ads from 1959. Notice at the bottom of the prgramme of events, a fishing competition. The prize for the heaviest blackfish or bream is 30 pounds. In the ads, notice the single and double digist phone numbers. An airline that used to fly from Sydney to Forster, and land on Wallis Island. Passengers were then ferried across. The airstrip still exists today.
