  1. ....... and mostly they were powered by a Holden straight six motor, ours was the 186cui, 161cui and V8s were also available.
  2. note to Alpo: this is a "ute". It is a utility, early '70s. From the door pillar forward it is of the current version sedan, all the way to the front bumper; from the door pillar it is ........ as you see it. The dogs, ....... I think they come with the vehicle from new. The horse ................... well, it's special.

I was in my first year of High School.
  3. ....... by the way, this picture is not of Taree; it is mostly of the seaward end of the Manning River delta ..... the southern exit. The northern exit can be seen in the distance and the community there is Harrington. Taree is further inland (to the west) where the delta starts and is "on" the river. A 'rural' town. In days before trains and road networks, the only real transtort to Sydney (or anywhere else) was by "Coasters" which sailed up and down the coast and used the river systems to service the communities with their trade needs, both in and out. The coasters used the Northern exit as it was much more navigable than the one pictured. Dairy products and timber were the main "exports", along with passengers.
