This site was established by Wal Pilz (1927-2016) to share historical information depicted in photos and images of old scenes of the Rylstone District. Wal's belief was that sharing history was the best way to create a living history for Rylstone and the surrounding district. In Wal's memory, the site will continue to operate as an online database and you are invited to contribute images and information. Please comment or email Dan Hatton at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Close-up of E.H. Nash’s grocery store. It has not changed much and might be recognized by some as the store owned by Mrs Hawkins.
The tin part of the building to the left is not standing but in its place the Carlton Café.
