See the faces that made the pages of the Port Lincoln Times from January to March in 1984.

It was the year the $100 note and $1 coin was introduced, Advance Australia Fair became our official national anthem and the first televised federal election debate took place.

The top song was Dancing in the Dark by Bruce Springsteen and big movies included Beverley Hills Cop, Ghostbusters and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

In sport Essendon won its first premiership under coach Kevin Sheedy, Norwood knocked off Port Adelaide to win the SANFL premiership and Australia won four gold medals at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, which included a gold for Port Lincoln’s Dean Lukin.
