My Memories - By Year

My Memories - Undated

My Memories - Electrical History

My Memories - School Years
 


 

For whatever reason - mainly for my memory or in case someone reads this and it brings back memories - I decided to do a list of neighbours that lived around us while we lived at 71 Youngman Street, Kingaroy.

It is only as good as my memory!

Corrections very welcome.

I can remember from around 1955 until I moved out in 1970.
Mum and my sister Karen have added to some details.
