Things may be a bit stressful at the moment but you can escape the present for a little while and enjoy a blast from the past with the weekly Port Lincoln Times Flashback Friday.

This week we are going back to April, 1994 to see who were some of the people who featured in the pages of the Port Lincoln Times nearly 26 years ago.

In 1994 South Africa held its first fully multiracial elections with Nelson Mandela sworn in as the first democratically-elected president.
