1939 Photograph looking towards Railway Station and beyond

​This photograph was taken in 1939 from the back landing of the property that is now 1 Hay Road, Dayboro.  My parents, David Edward (Ted) Protheroeand Ivy Weston, married on 3rd June 1939.  They went to Maroochydore for their honeymoon and this photograph was on the same roll of film as a couple of honeymoon photos taken by Dad on his Box Brownie camera.  

​Terrors Creek borders the property.  The creek forms part of the boundary between the Parish of Whiteside and the Parish of Samsonvale on which most of Dayboro township is situated.  

​The rear of the Railway Station building can be seen centre right with the goods shed on the other side of the line.  Coal wagons are lined up.  The building in the distance directly above the railway station is the original Masonic Hall and St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church can be seen on the other side of the road a little further up the hill.  The building almost at the top of the hill left of centre in Delaney Road was the Dayboro Private Hospital at the time.
