Thanks for sharing that priceless photo Garry.....wonderful.

Can anyone help Linda with her request?

I'm trying to find out the location of a business or a business/home in Estcourt Street.

Archibald Gilmour & his younger brother Malcolm moved to Terang in late 1885 or early 1886 & traded as Gilmour Brothers, Cabinet makers & Carpenters.
Archibald was married with 1 child when he left Warrnambool to live in Terang & had 5 more children whilst living there.
Malcolm was single & returned to Warrnambool after the the business partnership was dissolved in November 1887.
Archibald continued to operate the business, but after a fire in November 1890 & lack of trade he lodged an Application for Insolvency in September 1892 then returned to Warrnambool to live.

This photo of Auburn Central School 1946 was found in Terang in the early 1980's. Does anyone recognise a student or know how this came to Terang? Does anyone have any connections to Auburn? Love to solve this mystery if you can help. ... See MoreSee Less

The brick wall is definitely Auburn Primary School in Hawthorn East Vic. I haven't seen these blazers worn by the girls in any other school pictures but that wall is 100% the south side of the old Junior School building

I went to Auburn Primary School in the 1970’s!πŸ˜‰ But I’m not aware of any other connections in Terang😊

Hi, I shared this post onto the Auburn Primary School Facebook page. It’s a public group so you’ll be able to see all the comments confirming this to be Auburn Central School in Rathmines Rd Hawthorn Victoria. Cheers

I have connections to Auburn Primary which was Auburn Central in Melbourne. I am not sure if this pic pertains to Auburn in Vic, SA or NSW?

Chris might Jen or her family know anyone here?

How wonderful to find a Terang Histortical site. My family settled in Terang around 1890, after emigrating from Scotland. The Inglis family were still there in 1907 and had a postal address of Kilmarnock, Terang. My GG Grandfather William Inglis operated the kiosk on the Terang Station prior to opening a news agency in the main street. He then went on to establish Redmond Inglis Stationers in Melbourne. I wish to learn more about their history and contribution to Terang. Can anyone point me in the right direction or suggest how I can research. I have early photo's of the family in Terang, which of course I would be happy to share with the group if desired.
Thanking you in anticipation.

Apparently a Terang Footy Club event at the school. The year was 1982. See the op on the Terang page and the post shared by The Dead Livers. πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ»

I reckon around 1981

Wondering whether you or followers can help me with my research.

Do you have any records for the period 1886 to September 1892 ?

Linda Bamford-Hicks you could try rate records held at Terang library though idont I don’t think they gave allot numbers in that time. You may get a clue if they are listed in order down the street. Directories only show furniture maker..no address. Where are you living? Can you access the library once its it’s open again?

The shire has the rate books, that would assist with these types of queries.

What year ?
