It was a bit of an "out with the old, in with the new" front page on this day in 1977.
Pictorially were featured the shiny new brick veneer public housing homes in The Causeway and the old - and presumably worse-for-wear - weatherboard ones they were replacing.
Thirty-five weatherboard homes were removed, and while the NCDC may have had the best intentions, some vacant streets still there seem to attest to the fact not all homes were replaced.
The other "old vs new" story was the news a yellow cricket ball was "almost certain" to be used in three night matches as part of the "super-Test" series planned by Kerry Packer's World Series Cricket.
As traditions made way for TV fun and the great upheaval of international cricket unfolded, yellow seemed the best likelihood of meeting the new challenge of batsmen seeing the ball under lights.
"We will be experimenting with yellow and white balls...but the story we get from the NFL and VFL night football games is that the yellow ball seems the best," Packer spokesman Lynton Taylor said.
As it turned out, white balls won the day - and they still rule the short-form day-night formats.
And many, many years on, when Test matches were finally played under lights, it was pink and not yellow that won out.
