Home after another great meeting and in before the wind and rain hit.
Tonight Ellen spoke on her research on soldiers of WW1, who gave their place of residence as Bankstown. She has found 284. An impressive number, when you consider that the population of the area was around 2,000 at the time. Thank you Ellen and we look forward to seeing the information on the Library's website.
The wonders of technology! Tried to show a couple of website, relating to our questions and bombed out. First attempt, had the display on the big screen, but no internet. Second attempt, had internet but no screen. Managed to show a couple of sites with everyone looking over my shoulder.
