Historic Film shows Construction of Launceston Mall

Yesterday I saw a fascinating video on youTube. It is a film about the construction and opening of the Brisbane Street Mall here in Launceston in 1975. This was the very first mall built in Australia [1]. I am always fascinated to peer through the window of time into local history – to see familiar places as they were in the past. 1975 may not seem that long ago to some, it is only three years before I was born, but still it’s interesting to see the cars, the look of the people. There is something magical about seeing a familiar place from another time, the same and yet different.
