Bulletin 133 available

Bulletin 133 is now available. Its contents include:

A detailed description of the c.1945 photograph on the cover

Histories of the Saleyards, Scout Hall and Clark Bros, in the first three blocks under study in Johnson Street. This Bulletin is the last of our research for these blocks - the book is coming soon, and we will then move to to the block from Dalgetys' Corner to the Post Office. Any further information on these blocks/buildings would be appreciated.

Story of the grave of William Saffon at Blanket Hill, north of Glenmaggie, and his family's life in Maffra. Includes details of the actual location of the grave, and construction of the current memorial by the Maffra Shire in the 1930s.
