401. More Jottings by Norm Ca1988

These notes would have to be among my most exciting finds

and I will be forever grateful to John Gugger for entrusting these treasures to me.

I just love Norm’s uncomplicated say-it-as-it-is style:

This mill was situated on the north east side of the Moorabool River and

in the 1870s Collins Bros. purchased it with a view to converting it to a

woollen mill. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a viable proposition so they chose

new sites on the Barwon River, South Geelong. The old mill was later

altered and became the ‘Old Mill Hall’ used for socials and dances raising

funds for charity and local sporting bodies”.

Definitely must-reads for those with a genuine interest in Old Fyansford
