Re: Mystery Photo - Mine (coal?) somewhere

Phil,

Any chance this is a shaft in the Outtrim area? I seem to remember seeing an older photo of a shaft like this in the State Library collection. Maybe a search under Outtrim or Jumbunna will find it. The topography looks nothing like that around Wonthaggi. Another option is near Kilcunda.

Cheers

Michael

A photo at the State Lib Vic has me intrigued and readers' thoughts
are requested as to possible locations.

The caption has to be inaccurate and the date just about encompasses
every mine on the Powlett coalfield.

cheers Phil
