Great photos. The bungalow looks pretty much the same as I remember it in the late 60s when my parents were here. Allan Cameron

Two typographical details: At Mousa Ella estate, the Asst. Manager 1920-1921 was Littleton-Geach, H W, (not Little Geach, G W) ; and the Manager 1926-1927 was Dendy, N H (not Derdy, N H). Dendy was at the time the manager of the nearby Tillicoultry Estate and took on the management of Mousa Ella while its bungalow was being rebuilt. Littleton-Geach then returned to Mousa Ella as Manager until 1936. He was a keen member of the Dimbula Athletic and Cricket Club at Radella. A fine right arm swing bowler, he took 7 wickets for only 3 runs in the match against Dickoya, March 22-23, 1933

I have photos of Wayweltalawa, and Dashwood and Clark would have been included, circa 1920. Is this the same place?

Above left of the factory, amongst the trees, is the managers' bungalow and above right of the factory, on a field road from the bungalow, is the estate office whose situation may have been alright in the days of the horse but not so in 1964 when I arrived. As described in my book I moved the office to a new site on the cart road immediately below the managers' bungalow and converted the old building into a supervisors' quarters.

It seems to be a very interesting and functional design and floor plan; one which makes good use of the site and outlook. The siting of the garage in the middle adds to these characteristics. As a designer I like it - from what I can tell from outside.
