AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

May the newspaper continue to be the voice of the country for decades to come. (I love reading a newspaper, but fear for their continued existence).

That is a fantastic sign - great find! And thanks for sharing it with us :)

The Weekly Times sure has been around for a long, long time!

Joy said...

Like the bird, 1869 is a long time to be running the presses.

That reminds me of the Weekly Reader (a weekly paper I got in grade school).

That paper has a lovely logo and a lot of history. This would probably be the 1800's version of Twitter :-) Thanks for showing it!

I hope they survive in this digital age; for a while a lot of small newspapers were folding. Now they seem to be holding their own. Barely.
