Hughenden, 1926 – A newspaper carried this story about an innocent bike ride to school ending in tragedy.
“Ida Harrison, aged 5½ years, only daughter of Mr and Mrs T. Harrison, of the Railway Department, met with a very sad accident on the 11th instant.
“She was, with her brother, riding a bicycle to school when a violin case which he was carrying caught in the wheel, and she fell heavily.
“She was conveyed to her home, where she expired next morning. The funeral was attended by the Girl Guide and Brownies, also a number of school children.”
