This week, we take a look back at the Burrowa News from July 13, 1917, which is one hundred years old on Thursday. 

Despite how common and simple it is to attend movies in our times, in 1917 cinema was still a relatively new form of entertainment.

“The Spider”, starring Pauline Frederick is now considered a lost film. 

This edition also featured a number of articles on contractors and tenders and a report from the matron at the hospital.
