Transcript for Stephen Wolstenholme

Just about here on the Dock Road at Coburg Dock, there were massive granary buildings. They were of varying ages but were very high, concrete buildings where grain was offloaded from the docks by pneumatic pumps into grain silos and they were enormous buildings. I read later that when they tried to demolish those they had quite a trouble blowing up the concrete because they were fire proof and very sturdily built.
