Boom at Tumut

20 December 1950 Cootamundra Herald 

Gundagai is being left behind in the march of progress. 

Our neighbouring town, Tumut, is on the crest of the wave of advancement, business is expanding, industry is increasing, and building booming.

This State or affairs is mainly due to the Snowy River Development Scheme.

The works have brought hundreds of men to the district and hundreds of pounds to the Tumut businessmen's pockets.

At the present rate, Gundagai will still be a village when Tumut is a city.
