November 29 On This Day in Oz History

Yep, caught up a bit and finally posted ahead of myself.
If that makes sense.
If not....just play Polly and put the kettle on, ta.

1948
The first Holden rolled off the production line at Fisherman's Bend to the joyous squeals of a bajillion investment bankers in cheer leaders uniforms round of sedate applause from a sober audience.

And a couple of crumpets wouldn't go astray.

1990
Today was the day Things Happened...they mayn't have seemed like momentous Things but they went down in history nevertheless.
Then-PM Paul Keating (when he wasn't likening other pollies to limp lettuce) announced that Oz was in the recession "we had to have".

With Vegemite.

ATSIC = Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission was founded.

And lashings of butter.

AARnet, the beginnings of the interwebs in Oz, was established.

Ta.
