Al­le­giance de­clared to the Queen

The Observer - - OUR GLADSTONE LIFE - PAULETTE FLINT

1957: SEVEN new Aus­tralians de­clared their al­le­giance to Her Majesty, Queen El­iz­a­beth II and re­ceived their nat­u­ral­i­sa­tion cer­tifi­cates in an im­pres­sive cer­e­mony at the Town Hall. The can­di­dates were Mr and Mrs A Mostert, Mrs E Kapeechkin, Messrs O Blums, N Sched­ney, A Looyegna and H Sa­jdl, all of Glad­stone.

ON the sev­en­teenth of July, the Glad­stone Ob­server will be is­sued in tabloid form. Since the first is­sue of the pa­per in the year 1868, the Glad­stone Ob­server had ap­peared in its present form first as a weekly at six­pence (five cents) per copy. The pa­per will be much en­larged and ev­ery ef­fort will be made to keep our read­ers abreast with hap­pen­ings in Glad­stone and district. Be­cause of the in­creased size and cost of pro­duc­ing the Glad­stone Ob­server, the price per copy will be in­creased to four pence (3 cents).

1958: SO much mov­ing in Auck­land Street lately that it rather re­sem­bles mu­si­cal chairs. Mrs Arthur Friend has shifted into her at­trac­tive blue shut­tered home on Auck­land Hill, whilst the Gor­don Friend fam­ily are in the midst of mov­ing into her old home, Shal­i­mar. The Arch McEachran fam­ily, who were on the cor­ner of Rose­berry and Auck­land Streets, have moved into the house next door.
