Throwback Thursday- A look back at a decade ago in the Esperance Express

Recent Throwback Galleries:

It's our favourite time of the week a chance to reflect on the changes in Esperance, the faces and the fun that was being had 10 years ago this week.

Making front page news on July 10 was the 30th anniversary of the year when the US space station, Skylab, re-entered earth's atmosphere and its debris were scattered in the Indian Ocean and over Esperance on July 12.

The space station had spent six years in Earth's atmosphere, from 1973 until its eventual descent and crash in 1979.

Our journalists looked at how the Esperance community was getting ready to remember the incident that put the town on the map.

Take a look at our gallery and see if you can spot any familiar faces.
