On this day …….. 29th April 1914

On this day in 1914, Audley Shields, aged 15, was riding a bicycle along City road, Albert Park, Melbourne. He was thrown on the road and before he could regain his feet two wheels of a waggon, weighing over a ton, passed over his right, shoulders, escaping his head by a few inches. The lad was taken to the Melbourne Hospital in a motor car that was passing at the time and admitted for treatment.
