Itellya is researching local history on the Mornington Peninsula and is willing to help family historians with information about the area between Somerville and Blairgowrie. He has extensive information about Henry Gomm of Somerville, Joseph Porta (Victoria's first bellows manufacturer) and Captain Adams of Rosebud.

Ninety one year old Alena's story has been included in the journal. The Dutch windmill was near the corner of Malvern Avenue and Warwick place if I remember correctly and I also remember the stork. The mounds between Lancefield Rd and the service road were built at the instigation of Cr Leo Dineen to beautify the area and to act as a buffer to dampen traffic noise from the increasingly busy main road.

I hope to have prompted more of Alena's precious memories and they will be added to the journal as they are received.

Thanks for putting this together, excellent information.

Here's a link to a picture of the Caterpillar factory at the State Library of Victoria, from the above info I guess it's late 1955 or early 1956.
