Last couple of days we have experienced poor wireless internet preventing posts to the Blog. So we are now catching up with a special post on our stop over in Emerald. As mentioned previously our son Mitchell went to Emerald as a teacher after he completed Uni. On the way into Emerald
we were wondering whether he might be remebered by anyone. To our great suprise and pleasure on approaching Emerald a big monument had been erected commemorating Mitchell passing by the area. We screamed to a stop to check it out…too good to be true…….it was
actually commemorating Sir Thomas Mitchell an early explorer! He passed by in 1848 or thereabouts, forgotten the date now. I think we will need to check the graffiti in the pubs.
Anyway attached are some pictures of the old school he taught at, the residence in Bonython St and some of local developments. I thnk Emerald has grown substantially since Mitch was there.
