No rest for the wicked


Betty Heycox, Nelligen's self-appointed local historian, has opened up the 'Mechanics Institute' to sell her nick-nacks and bric-a-brac to passing tourists. Most things sell for 20 cents - it used to be 10 cents; there's inflation for you! - and the proceeds go towards the upkeep of the historic hall.



I stand outside as spruiker while the ladies - Betty at the left, Alison in the background, Padma on the right - put the finishing touches to the display.
