Lilydale Express Centenary Edition
On June 30, 1986, Leader Newspapers published a special 100 page edition of the Lilydale Express to celebrate the centenary of that paper’s service to the Lilydale and surrounding communities. Leader also published a gold cover version of that newspaper which had to be pre-ordered. Twelve months in the making, the newspaper covers all parts of its then circulation area including Heleasville, Yarra Glen and Upper Yarra. This special edition was one of dozens of activities staged throughout the year ranging from sports, arts, a car giveaway, special race meeting and a large birthday cake.
Our society has several pre-loved gold covered copies for sale.
The cost is $25 plus postage or can be picked up from the Old Lilydale Court House. Buy Book
