History Week on Flickr

A recent and important discovery that will be featured in History Week at Maffra - early invoices from a number of tradesmen.
History Week begins next Sunday, 19 October 2014.   One of the first events will be the launch of a book about Johnson Street, Maffra, at the Macalister Hotel (lunch at own expense), followed by a street walk along Johnson Street to see the "trades block".  See further details on the History Week calendar http://historyweek.org.au/sessions/johnson-street-maffra-book-release-and-street-walk/
 
 
If you attend any History Week event, please have a go at loading the photos onto the History Week 2014 Flickr, or email them to office@historyvictoria.org.au with the subject heading "History Week Photos".

We have discovered a few invoices from various sources, but this would have to be our favourite. When J.B. Kelly sold a dunny can at his emporium in Stratford, he would order a replacement for stock from the tinsmith in Maffra. He got it at 15% discount, bit it cost him 3d to get it to Stratford.
