  • Angela Walker . Commented on Mousa Ella

    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

  • Ian Gardner . Commented on Alton Estate

    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.

  • Ian Gardner . Commented on High Forest Estate

    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.
