The Lithgow Mercury has scoured its archived editions to present you with this fantastic look back in time.
Way back in time.
'Throwback Thursday' and sometimes 'Flashback Friday' galleries have become a staple of the lithgowmercury.com.au diet, with a new one published each week.
Each gallery is packed with local faces who have appeared in the Mercury news, community and sport pages of the year.
We continue our weekly series of nostalgia with a look at December 1983. There are plenty of fantastic shots so stay tuned for February part one next week.
Sit back and take a walk down memory lane.
