■ “The Way We Were” 5/9 pictures an unnamed white building between the Memorial Hall and the Town Hall. It was the former Commonwealth Health Laboratory 54 3 Ruthven St. Before this photo was taken, a returned soldier Mr Lang and his wife conducted a newspaper and magazine kiosk on the footpath between the Memorial Hall and the CHL. It was a hexagonal wooden stand with push-out shades above the counters, which were shut overnight. In those days, the buses lined up in Herries St outside the Memorial Hall, and the people catching them home, were regular customers of the kiosk.
