Port Lincoln Times Flashback Friday: 1973 | GALLERY

It is time for another wander down memory lane with the weekly Flashback Friday gallery, where we take a look back at past editions of the Port Lincoln Times.

This week we go back to the early 1970s to feature images from the pages of the Port Lincoln Times throughout July, 1973.

This was the year Queen Elizabeth II officially opened an iconic landmark of Australia, the Sydney Opera House.

In the United States Richard Nixon was sworn in for his second term as president, which he would serve until his resignation the following year.

In sport Richmond won a close VFL grand final, defeating Collingwood by seven points while Glenelg defeated North Adelaide by the same margin to win the SANFL grand final.

In tennis John Newcombe won the Australian and US opens while Margaret Court almost completed a grand slam, winning all but Wimbledon.

Who can you see in this week's gallery.
