Offices will often lead to a story.

Is the office at The Triangle the shifted Woods Point Office?  - perhaps after 1956 when I think the Woods Point Office/District disappeared. Why have an office at the Triangle anyway?  Certainly there was still a sawmill at Matlock until at least 1969, but were there other reasons for the location.  There was a house and an old camp at The Triangle until at least the early 1970s. 

Is the Taggerty Office shown in 1940 part of the 1939 salvage operation.  I understand that Taggerty was an important location for that operation, as told to me by John Barry Johnston.

When was Macedon established as a base?

Presumably the Tanjil Bren office is new after the fires.  It was still there in 1970/71 although unused on a day to day basis.  Where did the tramlines come from amd go too?

Who can add more to this?
