The Forster Tuncurry Oyster Festival was the highlight of the Twin Towns calendar.
Held on the October long weekend, it featured parades, sporting events, a tug'o'war and the Blessing of the Fleet, in tribute to the fishing industry so important to the Great Lakes.
We have been delving into the Great Lakes Advocate photo archives and while every picture tells a story, sometimes the background to that story is lost.
Which is why we are asking our readers to help.
Do you recognise someone?
Soak up the nostalgia.
