Readers, imagine if you can your own personalised virtual magical history tour in which, travelling in a 2012 ACTION bus, you do some time-travelling back through Canberra's history. Looking out of the modern charabanc's windows you see thousands of Canberra views, events and objects as once they were. Look! There's the Black Mountain Tower in 1975 only half completed! Look, there's the aerial display by funny little aeroplanes at the 1927 opening of the new Federal Parliament. And can that be President Lyndon B. Johnson's grand, bullet-proof limousine parked outside Woolies in Civic in 1966? Yes, it is!
