Quite a story of newsagents, firecrackers and opium!

This post in the The Chronicle in Toowoomba is worth a read.

As Toowoomba newsagents, John and Margaret Campbell, retire they recall almost a century of involvement in the newsagency game…when grandmother died selling newspapers on the (Toowoomba) railway platform in 1924 … and the 5th November cracker nights when newsagents sold fireworks – as well as firearm ammunition…and when mum could recall the Chinese smoking opium pipes in the back…

A colourful history and hopefully a wonderful future for John and Margaret.Click here to read the story
