When Canberra grandmother Rosalie Fewster was born on December 16, 1915, World War I was into its second year, Charlie Chaplin had recently released his film The Tramp and Albert Einstein had just published his theory of general relativity.

I like telling local stories with integrity. My greatest hope is that someone will read my story and turn to someone in a cafe or in the next cubicle or across the breakfast table and say, "Did you hear about this?" Email: megan.doherty@canberratimes.com.au
