This event commemorated the opening of the Tea Tree Gully Post Office and Telegraph Station on 20 May 1880. (It was delayed from the 140th anniversary due to COVID last year!)
Speeches were made from the balcony to the crowd gathered below.
Thanks to the Victoriana Society of SA for coming dressed appropriately for the occasion and contributing to the speeches. The North East Radio Club demonstrated Morse code and radio communication.
114 visitors attended, including in four Ford Prefects.
In 1880, locals also celebrated the opening of the main road between Tea Tree Gully and Anstey's Hill - named the Haine's Perseverance Road in honour of Mr Haines MP who fought for it. (Today we have Haines Road and Perseverance Road, separated by North East Road.)
