This week we’re throwing you all the way back to 1982, 36 years ago.
Did you make the Parkes news then?
It was the year Monopoly cost just $11.49 and a Barbie doll for under $10, Piranha II Flying Killers was showing at the Parkes Drive-in, the Parkes Radio Telescope turned 21 and houses were selling for as cheap as $28,000.
These photos were published in the Parkes Champion Post between November 1-10, 1982.
