Article about high temperatures in 1896

16/01/2016

With the high temperatures we endured this week I thought this appropriate. A little snippet from Trove that I came across.

The weather report in Albury Banner and Wodonga Express paper from the Finley correspondent on January 13 1896.

Temperatures of 112 degrees farenheit reported which converts to 44.4 degrees celcius. And to think there was no such thing as air conditioning and insulation back then, and I would hate to think what the ladies were wearing - at least three layers!

No reports of death by heat stroke though thankfully, I take it the old coolabah fridge would have had a good workout.
