This Day in History: 1906-01-25

A deputation from Newcastle lead by Vernon Hamersley MLC called on Premier Cornthwaite Hector Rason to ask for an extension of the Clackline-Newcastle Railway to Bolgart. It was “the largest and most influential deputation from the Newcastle district.” The Premier responded favourably but ‘all in good time’ was the message.
