Subject matter covers building of Main Trunk Railway and Spiral; views of township, its businesses and other services plus the devastating fire of 1925.

Also included is the school in the early days “under canvas” to the town hall then to purpose built buildings with numerous school groups over the years (pupils all named),the timber industry from horse drawn tramways, steam locomotives and the day a logging truck went through a bridge; and finally to leisure times of two-up, tennis and chopping.
