WATCH: New mural to be one of many in Maryborough

WHO would have thought the click of a camera in 1958 would make a mural in 2016?

The rain stayed away from Maryborough yesterday as the Ladies of the Exchange mural was unveiled near Queens Park.

Some of the women depicted in the mural were several of about 200 people who gathered for its opening.

Maryborough Mural Project committee member Tracey Gray said some of Maryborough's telephonists attended the ceremony yesterday.

"They were very excited, they absolutely loved it," she said.

"It was like a reunion to them."

Ms Gray said the unveiling of the next mural was on March 12 at the Maryborough Library.

"It's the cover of the (indigenous) Moonie Jarl book," she said.

Committee member Liz Lowrie said the mural trail project was to promote Maryborough's history.
