Mercury’s history award

From the Maitland Mercury report:
The staff gathered around yesterday as representatives of the Maitland Historical Society Inc presented the Maitland Mercury with an award for the paper’s contribution to preserving the history of the city and its surrounds.
This was the first such award the society had given and would be presented when an individual or organisation was found deserving of it, Mr Bogan said.
The society wanted to recognise what the Mercury has done for Maitland over the years, and we thought it was particularly appropriate now with the newspaper’s 170th anniversary approaching.
