Trove is fantastic for finding out snippets of information that you wouldn't learn anywhere else. I love the way journalists wrote, the detail of the mundane, items of news that would never make the news nowadays. The articles breathe life into an area or person.
Playford's Past will post snippets from Trove. This month, I will post about the small township of Penfield. Yes people had things to grumble about even back then.
