Released on 26 June 2020, each episode is a personal snapshot in time provided by the one who lived through it. Experiences rich and diverse are shared: diving for coins off the wharf at La Perouse; nursing a child at the infectious diseases hospital in Little Bay; being scouted by EMI records while Stompin at Maroubra; and finding yourself the reluctant first female Mayor of Randwick.
