Not so long ago we had to close our eyes and search our minds for the memories of our great city. But now, thanks to the power of social media, that has started to change.
Sandgropers who grew up in the 50s, 60s and 70s were the last to walk everywhere (when the deadly treadly had a flat). We could run a mile in a minute when Skippy was coming on the telly. Of course, our telly was black and white, our radio was AM and the coolest of us had a mate with a CB radio in his bedroom. Every suburb had a great patch of real bush where local kids built the coolest cubby houses. Pinching bits off the other mob's cubby was expected...and you knew they'd get back somehow.
Sadly, so much of what we once loved and took for granted has slipped away in the name of progress. Within this book are the memories that we craved, the inspiration to make a change and the triggers we need to make us look at our beautiful city in a different way. In the high scheme of things, it is a short history, but it is our history. (Warren Duffy)
