Booklet published upon the declaration of Dubbo as a City, Monday 12th September, 1966.

Preserved by Marina S Pentes.

The extensive presence of Kytherians in the Central West of New South Wales, centred on Dubbo, can be gauged from the vast number of advertisements in this booklet.

Was an advertisement placed by one of your family members in the booklet?

The Kytherian history of the Central West of NSW has never been fully explored.

1308:A nostalgic delight to discover this Business Directory - so many familiar names. I played in the Under 12's for Dubbo Hellenic that year. My late father, Jim, was on very friendly terms with many members of the Greek community in the Central West. Andrew Brockett
