Trove Tuesday - A Pool for Dubbo

My mother's memory isn't quite what it used to be. She does, however, remember travelling by train as a child from Cobar to Dubbo for the opening of the Dubbo Swimming Pool. When pressed for more details ie How old were you? When was it? she couldn't remember.

Trove to the rescue.

Sydney Morning Herald Wednesday 6 November 1935

So now I know that Mum made that trip to Dubbo in 1935 when she was 13 years old. I will be searching Trove to see what else I can find to help with Mum's memories. Thanks Trove.
