Plenty of coal dust - but a happy place to live. No 1 oval at briquetting factory. School excursions (by train) to railway station - as did the circus - which paraded by our home to the oval. 6 o'clock closing when the happy drunks used to stagger up the road to their camp and sometimes found them in our front yard in the morning. The big explosion in the factory when Mr Stack was killed. Learning to swim in latrobe River prior to the big flood, which washed away the swing bridge access to Brown Coal Mine, now Yallourn North. Outside toilet...Marj

A very friendly place to live. I remember the coal dust and not to touch the washing on the line until it was dry...Thelma

Comment

My grandparents Sinon Patrick Hannon and his wife Hannah May Evelyn nee Waters lived in 32 Railway Avenue from end of 1920's to late 1940's. He was the time keeper at the SEC.
Seeing as the Barton family think this house number was later changed to 10 how do we get this information correct?
