Coolio and Alanis Morissette were dominating the airwaves, Batman Forever was in cinemas and the mighty Bulldogs beat Manly in the ARL decider.
The year was 1995.
This week's Our History, Our Memories photo gallery heads back to the year to revisit some events and gatherings around the Manning.
Times photographer Scott Calvin has been busy scanning negatives to bring these photos back to life.
Many of the photos haven't been seen since they were taken 26 years ago.
Do you recognise a face, a venue, an occasion?
Soak up the nostalgia. Feedback and shared memories are most welcome.
Did you know you can purchase our photos? Call the Times office on 6552 1988 to order.
Visit the Manning River Times website at 6pm every Wednesday to view the latest gallery in the series.
