Darebin Historical Information

Firstly apologies for the lack of posting over the last few days. IT issues.

Anyway a news article in the Preston Leader the other day about how the Darebin Libraries are now listing a lot of the historical information about the city and localities.

So this all leads to the following website:

It certainly has some interesting facts and history about various locations in the are of Northcote and Preston. It even has the history about how this blog gets it's name.

It is a fab site, I've often referred to it as it is a gold mine of those little tidbits of info that can't be confirmed elsewhere/dates and facts confirmed, etc.
Well done to those who transcribed all the info!

So Cazaly had "tremendous natural spring". Teehee.

HEY Dam Buster,

I have made some grods posts that answer all your questions but it seems that I am blocked now.

You are always polite, but the man with a strange Surname doesn't like being shown up!

So - polite debate over, thanks for your intercourse and g'bye

Jayne - I think I am going to have to visit the library to look at some of the original plans that relate to the location near my house. It certainly confirmed a couple of things neighbours had told us about the area.

FL - indeed "Up there Cazaly"

Geoff - I am always interested in public open and fair debate. Name calling and silly remarks do not get us anywhere.

I hope the points I made can be used constructively by your group. Although I do not agree with your position on the debate I feel like you guys may leave yourselves open to a credibility challenge.
