I was in the State Library of Victoria researching some stuffs in the card index of The Sun News Pictorial and a couple of things jumped out at me as amusing. This is but one.
7th May, 1958, Mrs Norma Bond, a blonde dancer, stops a runaway truck.
It would almost be worth finding the entry in the newspaper to get the full details on that one.
From a history of the Melbourne suburb of Clayton, as I recall it:
Should you miss your train (at Clayton Station) and have to endure a one hour wait, there is a warm fire in the waiting room. It may not be possible to get too close to the fire though as it is often surrounded by dogs. Gee, they don't even have a loo at stations now, let alone a fire, dogs notwithstanding.
From the same book:
The football match between Clayton and Clyde on Crawfords Paddock erupted into chaos when the players in their new bright red jumpers were charged by a bull. They fought each other to take shelter in the dressing room while ladies lifted their skirts and ran into an nearby market garden. What? They grabbed a carrot and threateningly said 'Don't you come near me you big, bad, bull'?
I became so engrossed in my research for stuffs, I forgot the time and three hours had passed. It was more fun than the internet.
