President chomps on juicy offering

Australia Rare Fruit Council Capricornia branch president Tony Welch is today’s Blast from the Past.
Australia Rare Fruit Council Capricornia branch president Tony Welch is today’s Blast from the Past.

TODAY'S Blast from the Past is a "fruity flashback" featuring Tony Welch from June 1993.

All we know is that Tony was the branch president of an organisation called Australia Rare Fruit Council Capricornia and he appears to be about to sink his choppers into a zesty grapefruit.

Yesterday's photo sent in by Mr Phillipson received many calls regarding the bridge opening date.

The date was in September of 1952 and many people who called said they went to the celebration as children.

One reader recalled children being able to ride their bikes across the bridge for the first time as part of the opening.

The Blast from the Past section in The Morning Bulletin each day has generated a lot of interest from readers who share their own Blast stories as well as solving some of our mysteries from history.

If you have any information on today's Blast please phone The Morning Bulletin on 4930 4253.
