Port Lincoln Times Flashback Friday: 1963 | GALLERY

The weekend is nearly here again and that means it is time for another look back to the past through the Port Lincoln Times Flashback Friday.

We are going back more than 50 years to look back at who featured in the pages of the Port Lincoln Times throughout September and October, 1963.

Australia's Prime Minister was Sir Robert Menzies and the South Australian Premier was Sir Thomas Playford.

Australian neurophysiologist John Eccles shared in the 1963 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his work on the synapse.

In football Geelong defeated Hawthorn to win the 1963 VFL premiership, they would not win another premiership until the 2007 triumph against Port Adelaide.

Speaking of Port Adelaide, the Magpies won the SANFL premiership defeating North Adelaide by 33 points.
