Estoppey book published

Congratulations to Daniel Parker-Estoppey, who today joined the madness of the binding team at the Maffra Sugarbeet Museum (no waiting until next Tuesday), and has started binding copies of The Strength of Us: The History of Ferdinand and Isabella Estoppey, "Culloden", Freestone Creek, Briagolong. It is 28 pages, comb-bound, and will retail at $10.

Copies were walking out the door as fast as he could bind them. They are now available from Daniel, or from the Society at the Museum from next Tuesday.

Congratulations Daniel!

Can anyone help with names?

Can anyone out there name any of the students in Grades 5, 6 and 7, at Stratford State School, probably in 1954. We know that is Darryl Mildenhall back right, but have no other names as yet. Next time he is in the museum we will try to pin him down and see what he can do, but in the meantime, if anyone can help, it would be much appreciated.

They are a good looking mob, aren't they?
