Cement Works Museum
Welcome to ~
Gerry van der Meer, a fellow-member of the Geelong Camera Club "Lightseekers" SIG,
is an enthusiastic and very capable photographer and we are indebted to him for these special images taken by him on his visitations to the museum. It was, without a doubt, a time when the Cement Works Museum played a very real and important part in recording the history of Fyansford (and Geelong).

Thanks for sharing your time,
Andreas. Much appreciated!

If you don't look for it, chances are you'll never find it.
But, just occasionally,
you strike gold.
That's what I did ~ when I discovered Gaz's site.
I'd given up. Well almost!
And, his site… By the way, if you like cats, you have to visit his images page...

ndreas' collection resembles other historically-important documents, i.e. the Dead Sea scrolls, having been lost for ages – rare relics of historical significance that bore witness to a rugged pre-contemporary age – only to be rediscovered in more recent times.
Andreas’ few surviving records are but one handful of evidence describing the diverse activity undertaken in a small almost-forgotten time and place. Unfortunately, the Andreas collection is the only surviving relic; most other such records having gone to landfill, buried in suitcases under beds or spread across disparate private collections. Andreas and I are optimistic that further treasures remain to be discovered. In the meantime every attempt is being made to digitally record remaining evidence for public enjoyment as it comes to light. Reproductions of any of the work below must acknowledge both Andreas Makarewitsch and Fyansford.com as the copyright sources.

"With commentary by Andreas Makarewitsch"
This gallery comprises a series of pictures from Andreas' amazing collection.
Each image is numbered and I invite commentary from:
Andreas' fellow workers,
their family members or
anyone from the public 'in the know'.
The more detail I get the better will be the overall collection.
Andreas' goal is for the collection to grow as a tribute to his fellow workers.
We are both hopeful that others can provide additional information re:
activity being undertaken
photographer (where other than Andreas) or
original source (where other than Andreas' album),
