Were you born in 1955? Do you know what else happened in Australia (or the world in that year? The Born In ... series is has been created to record the events that made news in Australia year-by-year. Each volume in the series describes the happenings that affected people, real people, and is designed to make you remember and wonder at things you'd forgotten or didn't know about. They're also designed to get the older (and younger) generations talking about the past to rediscover heritage that otherwise would be forgotten. 

So what did made news in 1955?  Be careful of the demon drink, get your brand new Salk injections, submit your design for the Sydney Opera house now, prime your gelignite for another Redex Trial, and stop your greyhounds from killing cats. Also Princess Margaret shocked the Church, Huxley shocked the Bishops, and our Sundays are far from shocking.
