Tarnagulla Pine Plantation, 1927

Tarnagulla Pine Plantation, 1927

The plantation is bounded by King, Gladstone and Welsh Streets and on the east by the drainage channel. It was planted up and opened in June 1925, and the photo was taken shortly after then.
The plantation is located on the massive sand heap of R.W.Hammond's quartz crushing battery, and the plantation served to enhance the appearance of a large-scale mining precinct which was by 1925 seen as an eyesore from the bygone mining days.
From the Graeme Ison Collection.
