Una, Maitland Mercury reader for 75 years

From the Maitland Mercury report:
When Una Farley turned 95 this month, she began her big day of celebration by reading the latest edition of the Maitland Mercury, as she has done for more than 75 years.
This, Mrs Farley believes, could earn her the title of being the Mercury’s most loyal reader.
Last week she brought out some of her favourite copies of the newspaper featuring articles about her days riding horses in East Maitland and about her time as being Maitland’s first female taxi driver.
