Mt Disappointment History - Draft


This map is being developed from a map produced by the FCV in 1971. It shows sawmill sites and tramlines from that map, but treat the locations as indicative only at this stage.  However, it does give some indication of the scale of timber harvesting that occurred in the area from about 1880 until 1939.
