C V Cook Yallourn Watch Specialist Jeweller Memorabilia

Mr Cook was the first jeweller to have his own shop in Yallourn when a few were built in I think the early fifties, maybe late forties, between the National Bank and the picture theatre. Prior to that time, there were very few shops other than the SEC run General Store.

I am not sure that my watch came in this box which my parents gave me, I think for my 18th birthday. As it was a surprise, Mr Cook sent a selection into the National Bank (where I worked) on the pretense of it being for someone else, so I chose it not knowing it would be for me.

I believe Mrs Davey (Norma Hutchinson's mother) worked in the jewellers at some stage, although I don't remember that....Dorothy Andrew (Edwards) YHS 1948

Yallourn Bricks made by the Brickworks

Bricks used in the town's construction were all made on site at Yallourn's own brickworks.

W H (Dad) Brewer's family came to Yallourn to set up the brickworks for the SEC and then managed it until it was no longer of use to the commission. 'Dad' Brewer then leased it until he died in the late 1940's. During the time he managed the brickworks for the SEC, the bricks all had 'Yallourn' stamped into the 'frog', when he leased the brickworks and ran it as a family business, the family name 'Brewer' replaced Yallourn on the bricks.
