TROVE TUESDAY: … of drunks and vegetable soup

Curing drunkenness and cooking up a tasty bowl of German vegetable soup were, it seems, matters of concern to South Australian women 100 years ago…

Back in TimeAlways fascinated by the daily life of my Ancestors  I’ve found Australia’s free digitised newspapers, on Trove, as a perfect way to satisfy my curiosity and have decided it will be fun  to share these discoveries with readers by participating in Amy Houstons, theme of Trove Tuesday.

The plan is to select items at random from a range of South Australian newspapers, from 100 years ago, and have a look at what my Ancestors may have been reading.  It will be interesting to see what turns up.

25 April 1912 – Same message…different century

IN ADDRESSING the members of the Fruitgrowers and Market Gardeners Association on Wednesday, the Minister of Agriculture (Hon T. Pascoe) remarked that the scientists stated that Australian people ate too much animal food.  He thought the association would be conferring a great benefit on the community if it could encourage a more liberal consumption of wholesome ripe fruit.  If the public increased their expenditure on fruit, he believed they would effect a reduction in the doctors’ bills. In the matter of public health the fruit industry was of great vaue to the community.

The Fate of the Hot Cross Bun … cont

Chuckled to see a Letter to the Editor in “The Advertiser”  today commenting on the 100 yr old newspaper article I posted here just yesterday.

Letters to the Editor
Penalty Bunfight

NOTHING much has changed.  One hundred years ago April 4, 1912, the Bakers Union requested that the practice of baking buns of the Wednesday night before Good Friday forced the men to do two nights’ work which they objected to (The Advertiser, 2/4/12).
     Pity their thinking at that time wasn’t as modern as today when penalty rates may have applied.

4 Apr 1912 – The Fate of the Hot Cross Bun

THE hot cross bun is going to share the fate of many other old customs brought into Australia by the pioneers.  It is going to disappear.  Last year the Bakers Union requested the Master Bakers Association to discontinue the practice of making the buns, and after taking into consideration the fact that on the Wednesday night preceding Good Friday the men had to do two nights work, they decided to comply with the request.  Only a few persons engaged in the trade are making buns this Easter.

13 Mar 1912 – Controlling mixed bathing on the beach.

The beach and foreshores committee of the Glenelg Town Council reported on Tuesday evening that consideration had been given to the best manner of controlling mixed bathing on the beach.

The Town Clerk (Mr A.I. Tait) had formulated a draft set of by-laws, which were undergoing revision before being submitted to the council for adoption.

It was recommended that the beach between the baths and the jetty be set apart for mixed bathing.
