Trove Tuesday – a little Dungog humour

Last night while trawling Trove for some further stories on the Henny family of Dungog for my other blog I came across this amusing story.

It gave me a good chuckle as I imagined the event, and hope it raises a laugh for you also. A Dungog version of the Melbourne Cup perhaps.
