I've just done a slideshow specially for Eileen Rodger McKoy who is the daughter of John Rodger, manager at the Pyro from 1945 ish. She lives in California and her great grandfather and mine were brothers. I only discovered this 2 yrs ago.
She was an only child and lived in Canning St opposite the Park gates. She would have loved to have relatives in the town but didn't know. She used to get the bus to Newcastle at the bus stop along from the Traffic Lights not knowing her aunts house was just there on Victoria Rd west. How sad is that.
