  1. That is funny…..I have enjoyed reading some of the old court and crime cases in our Papers Past, which is similar to your Trove, I think. And, as you say, the same things keep coming up 🙂

    • They sure do Gallivanta… I first realised this back in the 1970’s when searching old newspapers, on Microfiche at our South Oz State library. I was searching for the photo of my mum being shielded, by her mum, from the batons of the “Special constables” during the Waterside Worker’s strike/ march during the Great Depression here in Port Adelaide, 1928.
      I was indeed mesmerised by how similar the “issues of the day” were 😯 Now I’m going to consult “Madam Google” re: your “Papers Past”. Thanks!!!

      • Oh, I should have given you a direct link to Papers Past. I have found several very interesting reports on my ancestors in these old digitalized papers because the old papers loved to report on small, everyday events and meetings.
