Stuart Reither was cleaning out his archives when he stumbled across a brochure outlining the tourism attractions and business of Shepparton in 1939.
Among the brochure’s pages are pictures of Galway’s Model Dairy, home of ‘‘Regal’’ ice-cream, and a ‘‘modernised and enlarged’’ Hotel Terminus.
Mr Reither lived in Shepparton’s CBD from 1936 to 1949 with his eight siblings.
He settled in Adelaide but returns to Shepparton often to visit family.
He brought the brochure in to The News to share his memories of his former home town.
