This is my last post for 2019 and has some welcome news.
The Essendon Historical Society are now back in their home at the restored Moonee Ponds Court House . You will remember that the court house was badly damaged by fire back in 2016 and some photos to show the extent of the damage.
While these major restoration work were being carried out the Bills water Trough also received some TLC from Grimwade’s Melb. Uni Grimwade Centre conservationists and was relocated into a more prominent place it now make a feature item in the garden in front of the Museum . John Ricketts made 3 new supports that the BHT is now mounted on, and Julie Scott has researched and supplied the information which is shown on the Plaque beside the BHT .
