Trove Tuesday - October Bushfires


We are presently experiencing a dreadful round of bushfires in NSW. A perusal of Trove tells me that this is not unusual for October.

1928 'GALES AND BUSH FIRES.', Townsville Daily Bulletin (Qld. : 1885 - 1954), 9 October, p. 7, viewed 22 October, 2013, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article61034436


1945 'BUSHFIRE WARNING.', The Canberra Times (ACT : 1926 - 1995), 24 October, p. 2, viewed 22 October, 2013, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2648993

What I find interesting is that these articles come from publications outside NSW.
