WHATEVER happened to that great picture of you that was published in the Register 30 years ago? How much were steers making during the cattle depression? Where were government funds being distributed?
All these questions will be answered in the Register's new segment, Let's Look Back.
A tidy-up of the Register's archives inspired the new segment, which will endeavour to bring you news, photographs and odd tidbits from the 1970s, 1980s, and as recent as 10 years ago.
Let's Look Back will feature a different year every week and will run simultaneously with the North Queenslander series on page 2 of the Register.
The Register is the bible of the bush, and as such, the segment will cover every part of the state from Cooktown in the north, Toowoomba in the south, and every place in between.
Interested in seeing more? The Register extends an invitation to its readers to drop in to our office and look through our bound archives, which date back to 1977.
Readers who have preserved earlier editions of the Register are also welcome to send a copy to: The North Queensland Register, PO Box 1907, Townsville Qld 4810, or email email@example.com
Keep an eye out for next week's paper, which will feature the raving days of 1977 and find out why a certain advertising magnate (pictured above) was in the North.
