Dumbleyung Historical Walk
Thank you to Chris Dawson from Perth for correcting a mistake on the school plaque which is part of the Dumbleyung Historical walk trail.
In relation to the prefab classrooms installed at the school in 1951, Chris says the units are BRISTOL Units not BRISTILE. They were made by the British Bristol Aircraft Company who obviously had lots of aluminium left over and not much to do with it after making aeroplanes in WW2 so they moved into prefab buildings. I don’t know how many units came to WA but I think over 100 were erected in Victoria in the early 1950s.
I can still remember the morning the semi-trailer arrived to deliver the components of the building, as it got bogged right opposite our house and there was much revving and grinding of gears etc as they tried to get it unstuck. As I recall, it only took them less than a week to get it built.
