Throwback Thursday – Photos from the Collie Mail from July - December 1965

It’s our favourite time of the week – a step back in time to reflect on the changes in our region, the faces and the fun that was being had during July - December 1965.

There was a lot going on around the Collie region at the time.

The second half of 1965 saw Muja Power Station up and running three months ahead of schedule.

After 12 months of being president of the Collie Rotary Club, Les Milroy handed the gavel to Clem Elias.

Collie's tourism potential was a talking point back in October 1965 when the shire appointed four members to a tourism committee.

For the first time since 1949 Collie's Mines-Rovers Football Team won the premiership flag against Busselton.

You can see highlights from the first half of 1965 here.

What do you remember about the month?
