Theme day: Street Lamps


In 1913 the citizens of Lawson erected a street lamp as a memorial to mark the centenary of the crossing of the Blue Mountains by Blaxland, Lawson and Wentworth in 1813.

With the passing of another 100 years in May 2013 the citizens of Lawson again gathered to celebrate the crossing. The party reenacting the crossing unveiled a bust of Lawson in the park where the street lamp still stands -- you can see it in the background.

  1. Wow! Who'd have thought 200 years has passed since the crossing?? Those names are forever etched in my memory by using 'LBW' as a memory jogger!
