Lithgow 4 of 4


That's the Lithgow Flash - Marjorie Jackson - winner of 4 Commonwealth Games gold medals, winner of 2 Olympic gold medals,  the first Australian women to be credited with a world record.

  1. When I saw the thumbnail I instantly knew it was the Lithgow Flash! Great shot Joan.

  2. I'd forgotten that she originally came from that area Joan - she was our governor here in Adelaide for over 6 years and It was my good fortune to meet her at a charity funcion in Government House.

  3. Yes, I thought she had ended up as Governor somewhere. A bit of tragedy in her life too.

  4. I didn't realise she was a Governor until your comment Dianne. Interestingly, I was at the National portrait gallery earlier this week and saw her image there too.
