Wonderfully nostalgic Adelaide stories — originally published in Bob Byrne’s hugely popular Boomer column in Adelaide’s The Advertiser newspaper — now available in one bumper book.
Adelaide Remember When: The Boomer Stories is a celebration of Adelaide from the 1940s through to the ’80s – the people, places, events and experiences that shaped the city and its Baby Boomers.
Remember King Neptune when he lived in a specially constructed pond on the banks of the Sturt Creek? Taking the Mad Mouse ride at the Royal Adelaide Show, still remembered as one of the best rollercoaster rides ever assembled? Or when Bobo the Clown was hugely popular on Channel 9 before he switched allegiance – breaking many hearts – and moved to SAS 10 in the early ’60s?
Take a gloriously sentimental trip down memory lane with Bob Byrne as he shows us the Adelaide of yesteryear that will bring a smile to your face, a lump in your throat and a tear to your eye!
