This CD contains the Torrens Valley Historical Journal from 2001 to 2010, the journal of the Torrens Valley & District Historical Society. First published in Jan 1977, the journals have articles on a wide range of topics relating to the history and people within the Torrens Valley district (which incorporates the towns of Birdwood, Cudlee Creek, Forreston, Gumeracha, Hermitage, Houghton, Inglewood, Kenton Valley, Kersbrook, Millbrook, Mount Torrens, Paracombe).

Stories of pioneer families, interviews with older residents, extracts from newspapers, cemetery records, church and school histories, sporting results and so much more are included.

The Gumeracha school has the distinction of being the first, and probably the school to also function as a telegraph office. Later, when the telegraph was extended to other townships, three more schoolmasters, two of who were in the neighbouring townships of Blumberg (Birdwood) and Mount Pleasant also became telegraph stationmasters, but whether the telegraph was located in their classrooms, is not known but is unlikely. The third one was at Milang where Alexander Kemp ‘wore the hats’ of Postmaster, Stationmaster, and Schoolmaster. In his instance, the telegraph was located at his residence and he was assisted by his wife.

High quality scanned images of the each issue. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
