1884 The Calgary and District Agricultural Show was established to promote local crops and to exhibit the produce of the region.
1910 Ilam Homestead, on the site of the current staff club, was destroyed by fire.

1985 Agent Orange Royal Commission finds no link *cough carp* between chemical defoliants *cough cough* sprayed in Vietnam *cough bulltish cough* and the health problems of veterans.

Hopefully I haven't been tossed from the train and am back in Melbourne to continue this delightful interlude with you tomorrow.

The Nylex Clock is still busted.

  1. Know what I like best about the Ilam homestead? The attached greenhouse/conservatory. I've always wanted one of those.
    I like the look of the smaller Ohinetahi homestead too.
