Canberra Weekly 1963

Canberra has the look and feel of a city that was constructed overnight in 1992. Without the juxtoposed old-and-new architecture of other Australian cities  it’s rare to see anything to remind you that Canberra has existed for ten distinct decades. So I was pleased to come across this 1963 issue of Canberra Weekly for sale on ebay today. My favourite quotes come from the Teenage World section (image 5 below) where the young TV personality Rosalind Doig is profiled:

“Classical music and jazz are her favourites in the music field and she thinks Elvis is a boob […] Of Australian men, the thing she dislikes most is to see them leave their wives in the car, while they are in the bar drinking”
