The Tenterfield Star is not yet on Trove so many finds are serendipitous. Such was the one about the land sale in the street I lived as a teenager.

The Parkfield Estate Land Sale
The sale of the Parkfield Estate sub-division, which has occupied public attention for some weeks past, took place yesterday on the ground. There was a good attendance of local buyers, but not so many from a distance as had been anticipated. The large barn fronting Pelham-street, was utilised as a sale-room, in which also a very substantial luncheon was laid out.
I wonder if the barn was on the block where I once lived? I also query my poor referencing with this undated newspaper clipping. Pelham Street is a long street but I seem to remember an auctioneer's flyer for this land which showed it was in the section where I lived. But certainly no proof.
This really illustrates the fact that one must keep accurate records of information and appropriate sources.
Perhaps one day I will be able to come back and update this post.
