Year Book 1968 - What Else Happened?
In this 1968 you'll find that Sydney had its teeth fluoridated, its sobriety tested for alcohol with breathalysers, and its first Kentucky Fried. And its first heart transplant. At the same time, the number of postal deliveries per day was reduced from two to one. There was still much opposition to conscription to the Vietnam War, and demostrations were everywhere all the time. The new Prime Minister, John Gorton, announced that no more troops would be sent to Vietnam. The casino in Tasmania was approved, so visiting there became a gamble. We won a small pot of Gold at the Olympics, Lionel Rose became the first Aboriginal to become a World Boxing Champion, and poet Dorothea Mackellar (My Country) died at the age of 82.
