Share your old photos of Hervey Bay with us

DO YOU have photographs showing people and places in the Hervey Bay of years gone by?

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of white settlement in Hervey Bay, The Chronicle will publish an historic photographic book later this year telling the story of the village that became a city.

From pioneers in carriages to teens in 1970s muscle cars, from Butchulla elders to young councillors, from beachside cottages to bustling resorts, from whiting fishermen to whale chasers, we want to share your pictures of the people and places of the past.

Email your photographs, with as much info on date, place and people as you can muster, to pics@frasercoastchronicle.com.au, or mail them to the editor, PO Box 217, Hervey Bay 4655.
