FRIENDSHIP GALVANISED: REUNION FOR ‘POMMY TOWN’ RESIDENTS
February 20, 2009 at 5:23 pm
In the 1920s around 100 English steelmill workers, galvanisers and their families were brought to Australia to begin operations at John Lysaght Limited.
They lived in a part of Mayfield affectionately known as Pommy Town, and more than 80 years on their descendants are organising a reunion.
