The mass exodus south before Christmas has begun, continuing a long tradition for many Territory residents. But our modes of transport are far more comfortable than way back when. Here's how the Bradshaws travelled to and from Adelaide on their holidays in 1905. Thomas Bradshaw was the postmaster at Mparntwe/Alice Springs at the time. He’s pictured here with his wife and their daughter Doris, who wrote her well-known memoir Alice on The Line about this time in their lives. Hope your journeys are quicker and less bumpy than theirs must have been!
