Memories Of Moreton Mill (CD ROM)

Memories Of Moreton Mill (CD ROM)

On the night of December 3 2003, the last load of cane arrived at the Moreton Central Sugar Mill, thus bringing to an end a 106 year association with Queensland's sugar industry. This CD contains over 40 pages on the history of the mill, its locomotives and tramway system. There are over 360 images from the steam era to the final years, 3 slideshows and 24 drawings of locomotives and wagons. With the mill now demolished and the tracks ripped up, this CD is an excellent resource for anyone with an interest in what was Nambour's Moreton Central Sugar Mill.

As I began documenting Jack’s story, drawing on crumbling newspapers and bound minute books — each page, recorded in copperplate handwriting, signed by Jack — the characters jostled one another to leap into life. My role would be to ensure they told their tales truthfully.
