    Hello, seasons greetings to you too and thank you for keeping the wonderful Bills troughs alive through your posts. I have photos of troughs at Annandale (Sydney), Glenbrook and Medlow Bath in the Blue Mountains. Let me know if you don’t already have them in your collection and I will email them through to you. All the best!
