This Photo is not a Form Photo - I suspect it may be a House Photo. The people in the Photo are a mixture of age groups

It is Mike Larkin who is the Scouter at Narracan Falls camp. I was not there, but we had similar fun at Connan Park at CAMP 67, a District camp in January. We had a rotten fruit fight, with two boxes of ripe tomatoes from Wakefield's (?) greengrocery. Mike was the Scoutmaster of Herne's Oak Troop and later Asst SM at Yallourn. The other pics look like Scouts building a triangular trestle at one of the District SCOUTARAMA events we held in the 1960s. I was ASM 1st Yallourn through 1964, and then returned to the Valley as DSM Strzelecki in 1966.

Now this photo brings back memories... Back in the early eighties I worked with a great team of people to repair and maintain these locomotives. I even remember this particular "loco", as they were affectionately called; it was a 90 Ton Siemens, which was easy to maintain and relatively reliable compared to the later model 120 Ton Siemens. I remember several incidents while working on a 2x5 Shift of these locos either colliding due to signal faults or driver error; but most were due to derailment at points.
As a electrical tradesman, I remember being particularly fascinated with the Mercury Arc Rectifiers that use to supply 1500 Volts DC (sorry denis definately not 10,000V) to the overhead lines. When in operation, they would glow and hum intensley when loaded by a the many high torque direct wheel DC motors (Bogie Motors)... Have you seen a Plasma Ball operation? Well they displayed visual effect similar to that.

All these homes were new homes
Iris moved to 55 Parkside after the death of my father in 1964 and she left about 1969 to move to Warragul to live with my husband and me.
First child born at Yallourn Hospital was Geraldine (Dawn) Sutton in 1929. Gloria Thorpe was born the same day but later. Mother, Iris Sutton, watched the outdoor opening ceremony from within the Hospital. Matron Madge Allen was Geraldine's Godmother and Doctor Andrew delivered her.
Mrs Tibbals was the Kindergarten teacher in 1951 and 1952 when I attended the Kindergarten - the other teacher was a Miss Ward, Mrs Tibbals seemed to be there forever.

D'Alterio Family leased the shop which was registered as "D'Als Foods" and was also know as "D'Alterio's Cafe" or the "The Cafe" from 1967 to 1973.
The D'Alterio family purchased the business from Len & Mary Auchettl and when we left approximately 12 - 18 months after dad (Lou) died, the business was purchased by Rob and Jill Martin.
Lou D'Alterio extended the business by taking the shop area well back into the rear storage area and created a fresh vegetable area.
In the summer people flocked to the shop for a soft serve ice cream and many a customer walked out with an "ice cream headache" after partaking a "Pineapple Crush" to quickly.
The shop also filled quickly as customers came in at the close of the cinema.
