DO YOU HAVE ANY HISTORIC PHOTOS OF IRONBARK, LONG GULLY AND WEST BENDIGO?
The City of Greater Bendigo is looking for help from residents who may have old photographs, drawings, paintings, documents or maps of streetscapes, buildings, homes or landmarks in the Ironbark, Long Gully and West Bendigo areas.
City of Greater Bendigo Director of Planning & Development Prue Mansfield said the City is currently in the process of undertaking a detailed heritage study of these historic parts of the municipality and how they have changed over the years. “Ironbark, Long Gully and West Bendigo features some fantastic heritage homes and properties.
“We would love interested residents to take some time to look through their old photos and see if they have any images of streetscapes, homes or landmarks that perhaps we could use.
“We are really keen to include never before seen images and information in the study and we would be absolutely delighted if residents who think they might have something that we could use would come forward,” said Ms Mansfield. She said anyone who would like to assist can contact either Paige Byrne or Amanda Jean on 5434 6355 by February 5, 2010.
“We would welcome the opportunity to copy the information and return the original documents back to the owners,” said Ms Mansfield.
