Narooma history is flourishing

This wonderful postcard image Town Centre in the 1930s has made an appearance (via Nurk Daddo) in the Narooma History in Photos Facebook page Olive Cannon made the comment on the site: "The bus is parked outside the shops & was owned by Haigh's. It came from Bega & went to Nowra every day. To catch the train & bring back the passenger's who had arrived by train for places south. People travelling from Eden were bought to Bega to catch the same bus." Sharon Bradly added" From the right going up the hill, Healey's Café, Syd Travis's Liquor Shop, and then another shop, and then Harry and Lena Costin's Café. Those barber poles were left there for years later, after the barber moved on, used to intrigue me, as my parents were great friends of Syd and Una Travis.
