Written by Rachel Bailey
On Friday 17th April, Arcare Cheltenham client, Joyce hosted a morning tea, where other clients were invited to peruse her collection of antique newspapers.
The newspapers ranged from 1950-1990 and captured major events from Australia’s history such as the appointments of various Prime Ministers, the Vietnam war and even the prices from shops such as Myer and supermarkets.
The clients had a wonderful morning looking back through Australia’s history. Several comments were made about how times flies and how much things have changed over the years.
Client, Ken has a serious passion for reading the newspaper, and he had a wonderful morning thoroughly going through each paper in Joyce’s collection.
