KHA received a good collection of photos of a workparty conducted by the Canberra Speleological Society back in 1985 from Mark Hallum. The collection can be found at this link: Mark Hallum Collection
Phyllis and Mick Dowling, attended the workparty, invited by a Tamara Binder, Phyllis grew up at the hut for the first ten years of her life as part of the Harris family.
Unfortunately the hut has since burnt down. This photo collection is a great example of KHA volunteer's work and its value to the original owners of these properties.
The following is a transcript of the entry in the logbook by Phyllis on the day.
Mum’s Story – Mirrie Townsend nee O’Reilly, born 5/8/22 Stanmore NSW, married Jack Townsend 26/2/49 Waitara NSW
Jack was born in 1911 at Cavey St, Marrickville his parents being Charles and Ida (formerly Molyneux). Before Jack started school they moved to Goulburn whence Ida had come and where her mother, four sisters and one brothers were still living.
My father, Charles John Townsend, was known as Jack. It seemed to me as a youngster that all his friends were Jack or Bill! It is interesting that both names have returned. My eldest son is another Jack Townsend. He was born the year after Dad died.
