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 email@example.com.
This is one of many postcards I have of My Grandmothers collection
starting around late 1800's to into the 1900's. The Charlie & Elsie
refers to Charlie & Elsie Mulholland and his brother Jack who was
shot coming home from school. He was a teacher at Yulumla."Jack &
Murial had two sons, one Jack who served in the 2nd World War at Darwin,
during the bombing of the city. Jack wrote two books about this topic.
He was interviewed by the ABC in February but sadly passed away later in
the year. Ref: Shirley Tunnicliff
