Seen any Good Dairy Factories Lately?

Has anyone seen any good dairy factory photographs recently. In conjunction with Maffra and District Historical Society, we are flat out on some research notes on the Cheese Factories, Creameries and Butter Factories from the former Shire of Avon.

Trouble is, we cannot find any photographs of them. At all.

So the above is an advertisement for Condensed Milk from the Avondale factory at Clydebank.

Our single, solitary photograph.

Can anyone help????

Our Banner has Arrived

Thumbs up to the Royal Historical Society of Victoria, and the Vera Moore Foundation!

We have a most excellent banner now for promotional purposes!

Thank you so very much to both - we look forward to being out and about with it very soon.
