Throwback Thursday – 10 years ago in the Busselton-Dunsborough Mail | photos

It’s our favourite time of the week – a chance to reflect on the changes in our region, the faces and the fun that was being had 10 years ago this week.

Take a look at our gallery and see if you can spot any familiar faces.

The November 14, 2007 edition of the Mail saw local students design and paint pavers to help create a relaxing area as part of a remembrance garden in the Dunsborough Cemetery.

Three schools, Dunsborough Primary, Our Lady of the Cape and Yallingup Steiner were involved in the project. 

The week was also a big one for local Iris Rose Higgins, who caught up with the Mail when she – after 67 years – found her mother, who was living Houston, Texas at the time. 

Mrs Higgins was told that her mother and father, who was in the army, had fallen in love and wanted to get married, but her mother’s parents had stood in the way. Instead, when their love child was born, her mother had been forced to give her away.

Meanwhile the McDaniel family replaced their unique dolphin letterbox after it was vandalised a few weeks beforehand.
