The first difference I noticed about Sydney and Melbourne was that Melbourne newsboys used their voices, Sydney newsboys used whistles. I missed the voices.

See the newsboy on his beat,
Doesn't get much time to eat,
His job is to catch the street
And sell the ev-en-ing paper.
'HERALD', hear him shout it.
'Thanks mate, read all about it.'
See the Newsboy count his tips,
While he eats his fish and chips,
Soon the cry's back on his lips
'Buy the ev-en-ing paper.
See him dodge the traffic lanes
His hands have gathered inky stains,
The chips have eased his hunger pains,
Wrapped in the ev-en-ing paper.
