Growing up on the Pipeline
Mundaring and Hills Historical Society is holding its first General Meeting of the year on Saturday the 18th March at 2pm. The meeting will be followed by a talk about growing up on the Pipeline at Mundaring Weir. This talk is to be presented by long time Mundaring Weir resident - Bill Cutler. So much activity at the Weir in the 1950s, it was an exciting place to grow up.
Times were tough for the families of workers at the Weir. Tent living during Summer and Winter months was quite an ordeal and the men were very lucky to have the support of families while the Weir wall was being raised.
