LOOK­ING BACK

Stanthorpe Border Post - - NEWS YOUR SAY -

WIRED UP: Pic­tured is the Stan­thorpe Tele­graph of­fice, which opened on Au­gust 19, 1872. The line was in the charge of Mr John­son (late of Dalby). Busi­ness was such that two months later a sec­ond wire was added. The build­ing was de­scribed as be­ing very mod­est but ad­e­quate – small enough to be “al­most thrown upon the dray”.
