Sheep Show Would Boost Albury [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner Wodonga Express and Riverina Stock Journal — 14 February 1941
Shew Show Would Boost' Albury ' PRELIMINARY investigations have almost been com-; . pleted by the special committee appointed to inquire . . .inio the possibility of holding a sheep show at Albury this, year. The proposal to hold the' .show was first advocated by .the 'Banner' last August in a special article written .by. Cr. J. E. Jelbart, one of the district's prominent sheep-breeders. , Principal obstacle to staging the show, will undoubtedly, be finance — the cost of providing hurdles for constructing pens. As the show would draw outstanding sheepmen from all parts of Australia, who would be able to give the town a wonderful boost, Albury Council and the Chamber of Com merce could very well give their support to the project, even to the extent of guaranteeing the show society part, if not all, the expenses involved. Even if the show was not a finan cial success in its initial effort, the money would be well spent. - ? .
