About Us

The Menzies Era web site was launched in 1996 as a small exercise to learn about the new World Wide Web. (There were only about 10,000 web sites at the beginning of 1996 - an enormous increase from around 700 sites a year earlier! The site was given a facelift in 2012, by which time there were an estimated 620,000.000 web sites.)

Over the years, The Menzies Era has grown to around 1,000 pages and a seemingly incredible total of more than 42,000 hyperlinks - so I trust you'll forgive me if I've missed a broken link or two!

During this time a number of our visitors have been generous enough to send us a kind comment on the site. These are some of them:
