    Caravan holidays were a great event. My Dad built our caravan which was often parked in Allambee Crescent and we had many trips in it. Your holiday seems to have continued that tradition.

    Wolff

    Yes that is correct. She always used her 2nd name Lorna rather than what is on her birth certificate (Edith). My parents were married in 1947 and lived at the Yallourn Hotel while the house at 3 Allambee Crescent was being built. I was born in 1951 and my sister Louise, in 1957. We lived there until January 1966 when Dad (John Wolff) transferred to the SEC in Geelong.

    Monty McKenna (Stationmaster) & Staff at Yallourn Railway Station - approx mid 40s

    A bit later I feel. The N class loco's were introduced in 1926. This is a photo of my grandfather Monty McKenna and staff at the Yallourn Station approx mid 40's. Monty was assigned to Yallourn from approx 1942 until he retired in 1950. I don't know all of the persons pictured but here are some:
    Top row L-R E G (Ted) Clarke, unknown, unknown, unknown, unknown.
    Bottom Row L-R Chris Sparkes, Wilf Peters, Jack Collins, Tom Kennedy, Monty McKenna, Cliff Montague

    I have another photo containing most of these personnel which I will post.

    Next to my sister (step-sister) Jane - I was in Melbourne at boarding school by then. I think Jane should have been 1st year High School by then.

    Great to see our old house relocated. The house was one of the last homes built in Yallourn and was a good sized three bedroom house. I remember their was a wood fired copper laundry trough in the back shed early on before an electric washing machine with rollers arrived in the house laundry.
    I nearly burnt the house down while playing with matches in the laundry where we kept the old newspapers, I got a firm belting for that. The SEC painters came every 7 years and painted the house in and out. We had the first SEC electric heat bank heater setup in the lounge for testing, on moving I then set it up in my house in Traralgon.
