Oh how the times have changed.
This week's Our History, Our Memories photo gallery heads back to 1976 to show the many faces and characters of the Manning.
All the hairstyles and clothes befitting of the 1970s are on full display, with many of those photographed highlighting a range of social outings and activities.
The group shots are proof there was once a time where social distancing didn't exist.
See if you can spot a very youthful Toni Bell, now editor of the Times, in the gallery.
We have been delving into the Manning River Times 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 a face, a venue, an occasion? Feedback and shared memories are most welcome.
Visit the Manning River Times website at 6pm every Wednesday to view the latest gallery in the series.
