Life's great in the western state
Did you know (or care) that back in the day, before people said 'back in the day', instead of calling the Eastern States 'the Eastern States', Western Australians instead called the rest of Australia 't'otherside'.
This was the vernacular when Henry Lawson bivouaced at 't'othersiders' camp' which in the 1890s sprawled along the East Perth reach of the lazy Swan River.
Yep, them were the days.
'Bloody t'othersiders!' has a far nicer ring to it than 'Bloody Eastern Staters!', don't you think?
