    Ok, this is getting serious now. I am going to get my friend Chalkey, onto this. He will know.

    You could even know him!!!

    There is not a timber mill there also, is there? Bit of a long shot, that.

    No, but that might be the other side of my family at Naranie. Lily, don't dig too deep, or you could find out that we are related and that might really worry you!!

    ^No chance of that, but if you dont know Chalkey, you are not a real Myall River man.

    Is it somewhere up near Karuah?

    Lily, with all due respect, the man does not want to say where it is and has given his reasons.

    Why are you still probing on a public forum ?

    No, it isn't. The Myall River is quite removed from Karuah as you know. As I said, I would willingly tell you, one on one, exactly where this is. However I am not in a position to tell you on the broad media. I'll be in BKK in April. Lets have a beer and I will let you know who I am, and who is up who.

    Johnny, I visited your home town as a school kid, probably 30 odd years ago. I recognise some of the buildings, but your secret is safe with me.

    Great thread Johnny !

    - amazing to see those old 'forgotten' places and tragic that they have been left like that - even worse to think they have been locked up on foreign owned land !.

    Testament to the craftsmanship of the builders for them to stand the test of time - would've been hard work back then !

    A bit of literary license here ?
    It's in NSW, right ? the last hangings in NSW were before WW2, and they were inside Long Bay. You would have to be 100 or more to have seen an execution as a kid ?
    But nice pics anyway. I think I've read about a place, which might be this, on the NSW south coast, the name eludes me though.....

He would take great pleasure in pulling the different canes out, flexing them and making swishing sounds with them whilst you were awaiting punishment. Once, a fella pissed his pants during this process, to the immense amusement of the class.
    My job was to bring in sufficient firewood. One day I found a relatively harmless Whip Snake there, bought it in and put it in his desk drawer. The poor teacher got a hell of a fright and was also bitten on the hand when he tried to remove it. My classmates were laughing like drains. When asked who was responsible, no one snitched, so he caned the whole class except the girls. He was a poor unhappy bastard with a cranky face, and a wife as ugly as a hatful of bums.

    There is definitely something not right about this. I have never seen an Australian school with 'School' written on it, especially in that kind of text.

    Is it a model village? The curtains still hanging in the milliners house are a bit of a worry too, as well as the noose at the gaol.

    So is it not Twofold Bay? Looks mighty like the old Boydtown ruins but taken some time ago..Presumably they are all NSW Govt endorsed B&B's by now...shudder.

    As for Lily seeking a Harbour Master in inland NSW and Vic...with respect how would you even know how to spell "School." ??

    Have you? LIke that?

    They normally have a board which says when they were established.

    Not just 'School' written on the side of the building.

    It was surprising how long it took for the penny to drop.

    Even before they built OST, there used to be Australiana Village built out at Wilberforce. We used to do school excursions out there when I was a kid.
