About this blog: random thoughts, discoveries, ramblings. Much of this was originally composed as email to a local history mailing list, rather than being written specifically for publishing, so it's a little disjointed. I figured it was better to get it out to everyone else in rough form rather than not at all.

If you have a common interest in anything, or can add further to the information I've provided here, please contact me.

  [Somerton] Newspaper ad from 1888

Did a little side project while I was waiting for the wood stain on the barbie to dry (any mistakes are probably due to inhaling fumes)

Christine pointed this out to me a couple of months ago but I've now done a transcription. The first section is a lot of business banter but further down there's some really good descriptions of the area.

Merry Xmas everyone
