Orica Talk and Stockton Over the Years Book Relaunch

It was a busy night for all involved on 16 August 2015, with a talk by Orica Kooragang, General Manager, Scott Reid about the history of the site, the relaunch of the first two volumes (brown and blue) of Stockton Over The Years and our Annual General Meeting for 2015.

First up Scott gave a really interesting talk about the site on Kooragang, including a number of images of the site when it was originally constructed. These were quite interesting as a couple contained pictures in the background of the reclamation at the bottom end of Stockton at the site of the ferry wharf. The many phases of expansion were also covered.

After the talk and discussion, Scott presented the newly printed Vol. 1 (Brown) and Vol. 2 (Blue) to our President, Irene Butterworth. We thank Orica for all their support in arranging and paying for the printing of the new copies of the books. They are still extremely popular and a valuable resource for those studying the history of Stockton.

 The books will be available for online purchase and at selected venues around Stockton. Please contact us if you are interested in purchasing a copy.

Thanks again to Orica for their support during the process of producing the books, with special thanks to Sherree Woodroffe and Scott Reid.
