Flashback Friday – the Collie Mail from July – September 1981

We've dug deep into the archives and found a goldmine in the Collie Mail vaults, dating back to the year of 1981.

While our digital archive only goes back about a decade, the Collie Mail has been covering all the news and events in the area since 1908.

So we've decided to dust off the papers and share the good old days with our readers from July to September.

Dating back over 30 years ago there was a lot that was going on in the region at the time.

So, take a look through this flashback gallery and see whether you can spot any familiar faces from 1981. How many still live in the region?
