Some past new years . . .

New Year’s Eve 1937, Times Square – little did they realise what lay ahead for the next 7 years.

New Year revelers in fancy dress gather in Erskine House, an historic guest house in the town of Lorne, Victoria, Australia, to celebrate New Year in 1920 - but still have to have the lights out by 10.30pm (right)

Dozens of ladies and gentlemen dressed in suits, fine frocks and hats pack King William Street, in Adelaide, Australia as they wait for midnight back in 1923
