Longernong College





The College as the staging post for my fathers journey to Hillston, from Melbourne.
I wonder where all the young men went and where their descendants are.?
One friend i have believes, like me that, our fathers probably knew each other at this place.Another young man of the time was instrumental in having my father and his great friend Bill Gamble move to Hillston to share farm at “Ace of Hearts”…where they did not succeed to beat both drought and the great depression.

It looks like people knew how to work hard (dressed in a suit)and to enjoy a picnic and relax with some very ancient cars. As i recall it my father worked either at Longerong where he taught or at Dookie where he was a student, with the late HV Mackay who invented the harvester.
Whether some of that work is part of what is shown here I dont know for sure………i seem to recall being told they were……but i no longer trust my memory now
