Here is a link to some home movie footage of Canberra taken in 1957 by my father.
The picture is grainy but hey it was 1957.
Can anyone tell me when Civic Pub was bulldozed?
BOZO, this is great, thanks heaps for posting this, it brought back some memories (albeit a little hazy). I can’t believe the city pool has been around for that long!
This is a trip down memory lane, born at the hospital, went to school at the old Canberra High, swam at the pool when it still looked like the film, played around the War Memorial when it was surrounded by grass and hedges and I remember Garema Place.
I wonder what the modern buildings will be like in 60 years?
Excellent, thankyou for sharing.
I have a number of other old home movies, but this was the only Canberra related one. I am hoping to post the rest on You Tube bit by bit.
and Canberra looks so much more “cluttered” now. Street signs, speed signs, lightpoles etc.
Its like watching Division 4 and Matlock police on tv – ahhh – those were the days.
Does dad have any more olden day stuff
That was beautiful! Thanks for sharing it.
At least Canberra is being preserved on film. Not like today.
Do you support or oppose the construction of stage 2 of light rail from Civic to Woden?
