Cemetery Clean Up on Hold: The Canowindra Cemetery clean-up has had to be pushed back again due to all this brilliant rain we have had. We need a dry week be- fore we get in to it. Thank you to all the eager volunteers we will get up there as soon as we can. We would’ve gone last Sunday but we only had one row boat – Tommy Jeffs.
Mystery Photo: The Canowindra Historical Society was contacted recently by Trafalgar and District Historical Society in Gippsland, Victoria about a photo (see below) that had been found outside the fire station in Kitchener Street. The photo shows a young woman in a fancy dress outfit. On the back someone has written in pencil in what appears to be a fairly young hand “I’m the Queen of Hearts 1933” and in what seems to be an older hand in pen, “Fancy Dress Ball at Cudal, NSW”. Can anyone identify the person in the photo and what the event was about…?
