The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - UP FRONT -

The year was 1940, and I be­lieve it was the last Ade­laide Show un­til after WWII. My brother and I went by tram with­out our par­ents.

We were given six shillings each. I re­mem­ber sam­ple bags with lit­tle pack­ets of Corn Flakes, tiny jars of Vegemite, white choco­late frogs, Lifesavers and Phan­tom comics.

When his money ran out, my young brother found a way to cir­cum­vent the ticket of­fice of a sideshow. I longed for a dolly on a stick, but alas, my money was almost gone. There were just enough pen­nies for a tram ride home. Linda Sut­ton Kad­ina
