Western Australian BHTs

The  legacy of the George and Annis Bills  Trust is still remembered today in three Western Australia town.
The towns of Hines Hill, Merredin and NorthCliffe, they all feature a horse trough which was funded by the Bill Trust,
some time between 1930 to 1939,
All these troughs which are not like the ones to be seen in the Eastern states, which were mass produced and distributed by the Rocla company.
.
These troughs would have been made by a local contractor and installed .
They all have a plaque stating they were donated by George and Annis Bills Australia
 
 Interesting to note the plaque on the Trough at Northcliffe Pioneer Museum  as Annis,s name as Anne Bills.
This is just another example of the distance the Bills Trust spread throughout the world. 
 
Still seeking your help to locate and Bills Troughs in South Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory, so far I have been unable to find any.
