Riot reader Old Canberran is in the process of scanning in the photos he took back in 1948 and is sending some highlights in for us to gawp at.
This is a more recent photo to kick off the series but of interest for pub trivia purposes coming with the following information:
- “It is the original Canberra Hospital in Balmain Circuit, Acton. Now part of the ANU as the School of Earth Sciences. I was born there at the hands of our next door neighbour, Dr John James after whom the hospital is named.”
We’ll get into the old photos next week.
