Port Lincoln Times Flashback Friday: 1974 | GALLERY

Time to wind down for the weekend and we can't think of any better way than a look back at the photos of yesteryear in this week's Port Lincoln Times Flashback Friday gallery.

This week we are going back 47 years to have a look at the photos that featured throughout November, 1974.

This week's photos include the official opening of the Tumby Bay Area School. a local family turning the Wangary Methodist Church into their new home and the launch of the latest upgrades to the Port Lincoln Yacht Club.

What other events do you remember from the pictures here or do you recognise anyone who featured in the pages of the Port Lincoln Times throughout November, 1974?


In 1974 politics, Prime Minister Gough Whitlam was re-elected against Billy Snedden in the 1974 federal election while future Prime Minister John Howard started his time in Parliament in the opposition's backbench.

The year saw Countdown start on Australian TV screens while Peter Weir's cult classic 'The Cars That Ate Paris' hit movie screens.

In sport Australia made its first ever FIFA World Cup appearance in West Germany, losing to East Germany 0-2 and West Germany 0-3, finishing with a 0-0 tie with Chile.
