We've had a lot of fun going through the old archives here at The News.
While we poured over old articles and classifieds, we were also amazed by the old advertisements in the paper.
Our favourite line by far was the fine print at the bottom of the "Ridley Positively Rids" ad, proudly declaring "By the way - we do all the crawling, we have no employees."
Rather than the glossy catalogues we're used to these days, Woolworths' ads had a black and white drawing of each product, and the K.S. Motors ad asked for a deposit of only $325 - no doubt big bucks in those days, but imagine if we could drive away a car with a deposit like that these days?
The same page, dated September 29, 1967, also had a photo of the inter-house sports champions at St Coleman's College (now Notre Dame College). The boys were, back row to left: G. O'Brien (under 15), R. Woodhouse (under 14), F. Tremellen (under 16), P. Faulkiner (open), D. O'Brien (under 13); and front row left: R. Smith (under 10), E. Cahill (under 12), and B. Drum (under 11).
