Newstead Echo 100 Years Ago


The old post office building, which was advertised for sale for removal some time ago, has been disposed of to Mr Jens Hansen for the sum of 40 pound.  The building is of brick and contains 9 rooms.  Mr Hansen endeavoured to buy the land, about half acre, but the department refused to sell.  the building was condemned some years ago after a big flood.

During the past week showery weather has been experienced, and the rain that has fallen will be of great value to farmers and graziers.  Rain has fallen daily and was of a steady soaking nature.  The fall for the week is 87 points, and for the year 6 inches 10 points.
